Lots Moar Pixels!


Better resolutions pictures of Ultima Thule are now coming in from New Horizons. We can now tell that it’s a two-lob object, and the mission science team has named the two lobes “Ultima” and “Thule.”

There are about 28,000 pixels across this image of Ultima Thule. The image I posted yesterday contained 6 pixels.

Color data from the low-resolution camera has been overlaid with higher resolution imagery to produce this first color image.More data will be coming in over the coming weeks.

Stay tuned.
