A historical view of Pluto. NASA's New Horizons spacecraft flew by on 14th July! and made some shots of the dwarf planet. Before now, Pluto was only seen as a white blurred spot within our Solar System. On Tuesday, 14 July 2015 11:49:58 UTC was the closest encounter of the New Horizons with the planet. It took the spacecraft more than 9 years for its 3 billion miles (4.8 billion km) journey to Pluto, but its just a stopover on its way to the Kuiper Belt, a region of the Solar System beyond the planets.
But this stopover will make Pluto a 'star', the center of planetary attention, kind of a revenge, beeing re-categorized as a "dwarf planet", no longer beeing part of the "classical nine" planets.
