I'm too snooty to look any minor planet with a moon called Sharon.

I think it's called Charon!

If it was called Sharon, there'd need to be another moon called Tracy. :blink:

The shorter one with big hips?

Pluto looks quite interesting. This is the side they are not going to see in close up.

Why doesn't God turn it round, so we can see the other side? That's what I do with vases. :wacko:

You're deeper than I thought, h_r!

No he's not. He seems to be fascinated with human excrement.

I however, am shallow all the way to the bottom.

You do know that's just a golf ball photographed through some greaseproof, don't you?

I'm sort of hoping I can't meet you in real life. You might be dangereous. Just like me!

This is getting pretty close now. Less than 1 hour to closest approach and under 30000 miles away !

Last image taken last night before the close approach flyby. If it all goes wrong this is the last we get.

It still looks like a golf ball. Now somebody here has spoiled science for me, my telescope is for sale!

Well that's it - closest approach.

I can now retire, safe in the knowledge that HPC was fully informed of this half a billion dollar once in a lifetime scientific event.

Needless to say the level of interest shown was just spectacular, and exceeded my wildest expectations.

Don't worry. We won't meet in real life. I think I'm too daft to be dangerous! It could be cataclysmic. ?

Did they expect it to be that colour? Any conspiracy theories ?

.

Yes, it's been known for quite some time that Pluto is red and Charon grey. Well, reddish. Not by taking colour photographs as such but by comparing its brightness at red and blue wavelengths.
