Now, using data gathered by the New Horizons spacecraft when it flew past the pint-sized planet in 2015, NASA has published a video that offers the best look yet at what it would be like to fly high over Pluto's frigid peaks and valleys, and it's glorious.

A flight over Pluto shows the highlands and the planet's nitrogen icy plain, Sputnik Planitia. It eventually concludes over Tartarus Dorsa.

Friday marked the two-year anniversary of New Horizons' fly-by of Pluto and its system. The spacecraft also collected other data, which helped in understanding the mysterious worlds that exists on the outer frontier of our solar system.

The Charon video starts shows a deep canyon called Serenity Chasma, moves north over Dorothy Gale crater, dark polar hood of Mordor Macula, south showing part of Oz Terra and finishing up on the relatively flat equatorial plains of Vulcan Planum and "moated mountains" of Clarke Montes. NASA has unveiled a set of detailed, high-quality global maps of Pluto and Charon.

NASA said the images are exaggerated "by a factor of two to three times" to emphasize topography and the surface colors have been enhanced to bring out detail. All feature names on Pluto and Charon are informal. The spacecraft took nine-and-a-half years to get there. While MU69 itself eluded direct detection, the June 3 data provided valuable and unexpected insights that have already helped New Horizons.

"These results are telling us something really interesting", said New Horizons Principal Investigator Alan Stern, of SwRI.
