Hydra for LORRI

Explanation: This image is one of a series of images of Hydra taken by the New Horizons LOng Range Reconnaissance Imager (LORRI). The precise position of Hydra was not known, so several overlapping images were taken. Hydra unexpectedly landed in the overlapping corner of four of the six images taken. The combination of these four images generated a better image of this small satellite than expected.
