“The equally exciting flight over Charon begins high over the hemisphere New Horizons saw on its closest approach, then descends over the deep, wide canyon of Serenity Chasma. The view moves north, passing over Dorothy Gale crater and the dark polar hood of Mordor Macula. The flight then turns south, covering the northern terrain of Oz Terra before ending over the relatively flat equatorial plains of Vulcan Planum and the “moated mountains” of Clarke Montes.

The topographic relief is exaggerated by a factor of two to three times in these movies to emphasize topography; the surface colors of Pluto and Charon also have been enhanced to bring out detail.”

Yes, I'm sure it is both of those things, Leanne.

It looks awfully cold and desolate. Thanks, Bill.

And I lightened this a bit after capturing it from the video! But you're right, it has some nice nuances of color. Thanks for taking pity on my poor puzzle! :-)

I was feeling sorry for such a dark puzzle, afraid no one would solve it. Imagine my surprise to see nuances of color when broken into pieces. Not bad for a dark one. :-)
