My daughter is going to love this. She has an interest in astronomy. If she reads or watches something about the solar system, and they won't acknowledge Pluto as a planet it upsets her!

AS THE NEW Horizons team continues its countdown to the space probe’s closest approach to Pluto on Tuesday morning, it continues to release snapshots of the icy rock. Today’s image, taken by the black-and-white LORRI camera, shows four evenly-spaced spots on the side that faces Charon, Pluto’s largest moon.
