The Planet Pluto orbits from billions of miles away. It is much smaller than any of the official planets and now classified as a "dwarf planet".

Pluto is smaller than seven of the solar system's moons the Moon, Io, Europa, Ganymede, Callisto, Titan and Triton.

Now, images from the closest approach of the New Horizons spacecraft, offer the highest resolution images we’ll see of the icy surface.
