Pluto Flyby—Illustrators Give Some Love To Our Beloved Dwarf Planet

July 14, 2015 marks the day we finally have a complete family photo of our solar system’s planets.

(Yes, I said planets. Take that, Neil!)

The space probe New Horizons has completed its nine-year journey to fly by Pluto and its moons. We now have a clear photograph of how Pluto looks like.


Pluto’s Photo from NASA

Thanks to social media, NASA was able to give live updates on the current status of the New Horizons probe, culminating into this true color image of the said planet.

As expected, illustrators from all around the internet are already on it and created several fan art shared across social media channels.

Check out some of the internet’s Pluto Flyby fan art here:
