New Delhi: Colour coordinating with the holiday spirit, NASA's New Horizons composition team released a new image of Pluto decked out in red and green.

Produced using a pair of Ralph/LEISA instrument scans obtained at approximately 9:40 AM on July 14, from a mean range of 67,000 miles (108,000 kilometers), the dwarf planet looks glorious at a resolution of about 7 kilometers per LEISA pixel.


To construct the false colour Christmas portrait of Pluto, three infrared wavelength ranges (2.28-2.23, 1.25-1.30 and 1.64-1.73 microns) were placed into the three color channels (red, green and blue, respectively).

NASA also released a video by combining psychedelic images of the planet and sped it up by about 17 times from the original frame rate. If one watches the video through a pair of diffraction glasses, it feels like you're flying by the planet.
