The next time you fly over Pluto

Another animated view of the former planet as seen by the New Horizons space probe.

The download of images will continue through next year, because the connection speed is much worse than AOL in its  dial up days (at one point a plodding 2,000 bits per second, when 52 kilobits was considered crawling). But despite that, the visuals, like the one above are still pretty amazing.
