This new, detailed global mosaic color map of Pluto is based on a series of three color filter images obtained by the Ralph/Multispectral Visual Imaging Camera aboard New Horizons during the NASA spacecraft's close flyby of Pluto in July 2015. The mosaic shows how Pluto's large-scale color patterns extend beyond the hemisphere facing New Horizons at closest approach- which were imaged at the highest resolution. North is up; Pluto's equator roughly bisects the band of dark red terrains running across the lower third of the map. Pluto's giant, informally named Sputnik Planitia glacier - the left half of Pluto's signature "heart" feature - is at the center of this map. ... mosaic.jpg

Hi symaski62,

many thanks for this link to the latest rgb rectangular color map of Pluto. I suppose it is still enhanced color. Quite a medley of subtle reddish colors. Do we have another "red (Dwarf) Planet" here besides Mars?

Here is a close-up view of this new 5926x2963 texture in celestia.Sci:
