Pluto Surface (Artist's impression)

Artist’s impression of how the surface of Pluto might look, according to one of the two models that a team of astronomers has developed to account for the observed properties of Pluto’s atmosphere, as studied with CRIRES. The video shows patches of pure methane on the surface. At the distance of Pluto, the Sun appears about 1000 times fainter than on Earth.
