Wow! If you zoom in real close…

Damn, some of those craters are massive. Would be funny to see either SOS or HELP written in the soil.

Awesome!

That it lost its status due to an equality rights case with thousands of other newly discovered Kuiper objects means nothing to me. In my heart it will always be the ninth planet! :slight_smile: I recall how the hypothesis on its “part-time” atmosphere intrigued me. So cool (literally).

@fearlessfrog As a fellow ex-Speccy user, do you remember this one?

I propose that Mudspike officially acknowledge Pluto as the ninth planet in our solar system. :slightly_smiling_face:

That’s all photo data no? No LIDAR (which would probably take ages to transmit)?

The following question is put to the august Mudspike forum cadre.

Is the orbital body known as Pluto a planet in our solar system, or is it not a planet?

  • Yes, Pluto is a planet of the solar system
  • No, Pluto is not a planet

Results will be forwarded to DCS World and X-Plane for proper designation in their night star scapes…and to Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson and Dr. Mike Brown for some “in your face!”
