Hubble Space Telescope Maps of Pluto

Explanation: This is the most detailed view to date of the entire surface of Pluto, as constructed from multiple NASA Hubble Space Telescope images taken from 2002 to 2003. NASA's New Horizons spacecraft, now just 8 months to Pluto, will get sharper images of Pluto starting in spring 2015.
