Flying Over Pluto's Largest Moon, Charon


Images from NASA's New Horizons spacecraft were used to create this flyover video of Pluto's largest moon, Charon. The 'flight' starts with the informally named Mordor (dark) region near Charon's north pole. The camera then moves south to a vast chasm, descending from 1,100 miles to just 40 miles above the surface to fly through the canyon system.
