Some of the last photos we'll see from New Horizons' Long Range Reconnaissance Imager (LORRI) were released by NASA today, showing the once-planet in extraordinary detail. The image is a composite of four photos taken by New Horizons combined with color data from another on-board instrument. This image was taken from about 280,000 miles away, and is twice the resolution of previous photos taken. NASA/JHUAPL/SwRI
