Wonderful, korovev, thanks ... it's a great archive with daily specials ... the Venus/Jupiter conjunction on June 30th was also amazing ... there were of course more exciting, fantastic shots and perspectives everywhere ... :D

So, there we are right now, with half an hour to go for the extraordinary, long awaited, one of a kind Pluto Flyby of the 'New Horizons' at 07:49am EDT, what a wonderful name ... :P

Everything you'd like to know about the 'New Horizons Mission to Pluto' ... Event Timeline ... :)

Nasa New Horizons Pluto flyby: Where to watch live online as spacecraft makes history
or
We're going to reach Pluto for the first time in history today — here's how to watch

whereas, as they say and most of you might already know
Quote:
It's important to note that the countdown coverage will not include any live feed of the spacecraft moving by Pluto because we have no telescope strong enough to see the tiny piano-sized spacecraft in enough detail. And the spacecraft is about 4.5 light hours from Earth, so its coverage of the flyby will take at least 4.5 hours to reach us.
At its closest approach, New Horizons is intended to pass within 7,600 miles of Pluto at a speed of 30,8000 miles per hour. At such breakneck speeds, the spacecraft will only have a few hours to collect as much scientific information on the geography and composition of Pluto as it can.
That means that, at the time of its closest approach, New Horizons will be too busy to send a signal to Earth, confirming that the mission was a success. So, that crucial message — letting scientists know if the spacecraft's flyby took place without incident — should come in later on Tuesday at 1.53 am BST / 8:53 pm ET

I wish you all an exciting day and time ... Let's all have some fun on our way to new horizons ... :D
