New Hubble Images of Pluto

As reported over on the SP3 blog at Hubble Images of Pluto, yesterday, NASA released some new images of Pluto taken with the Hubble Space Telescope, that reveal Pluto to be "a complex-looking and variegated world with white, dark-orange, and charcoal-black terrain." Pluto's many changes show it to be "not simply a ball of ice and rock but a dynamic world that undergoes dramatic atmospheric changes."

Follow the link above to other links to NASA's Hubble photos of Pluto, including a video.

We've known for some time that Pluto undergoes dramatic atmospheric changes as the atmosphere melts and refreezes (I wrote a story based on that, if you'll recall).
How nice. Now we can see what we have guessed for a while.
but still not a planet. :(
You got that smiley going the wrong way.
In other words, it IS a planet, damn it!
My, what a lovely dwarf planet you have there. ;-)
