Nix is one of Pluto’s small moons. It was discovered using the Hubble Space Telescope in 2005. It was the best imaged of the small moons by the New Horizons spacecraft during the 2015 flyby of Pluto. This is the highest-resolution image of Nix. On 14 July, 2015, the basic image was captured in grayscale by LORRI camera and color has been added based on other images from Ralph MVIC.

  1. It’s amazing to think that after all the years spent gazing upwards that we are still discovering things in our own solar system.
