Simulated Video Gives You a First-Hand Look of New Horizons Pluto Flyby

By: | August 20th, 2015


Around a month ago, the New Horizons spacecraft finally completed a 3-billion-mile trek across the solar system that included a flyby of Pluto.

A flyby that produced the clearest, most pristine images of Pluto the world has ever seen, no less.

Seeing as how we seem to be fascinated with video, Vimeo user Bjorn Jonsson created a simulated video that gives you a passenger’s seat view of New Horizons on the flyby.

The interesting aspect of the simulated video is the fact that Jonsson actually included real images of Pluto taken by New Horizons, in addition to its moon, Charon, and the dwarf planet’s atmosphere.

At the moment, the New Horizons team is still deciding where to send the spacecraft next, but wherever they choose, hopefully we’ll get another cool little video from Jonsson.
