VIDEO: NASA releases new incredible footage of Pluto
Pluto is a dwarf planet in the Kuiper belt, a ring of bodies beyond Neptune. It was the first Kuiper belt object to be discovered.

Now the spacecraft New Horizons has sent back pictures taken at the Pluto-passing in July.

They show detailed footage, including a 3500 meter high mountain range with most likely ice on it.

When the spacecraft New Horizons passed Pluto on July 14 this summer, the mood was high at NASA.

On Thursday, new images were released from when the spacecraft was closest to Pluto.

The photos were, according to Reuters, taken just before sunset and show several high mountain peaks.

A mountain in the pictures is estimated to be 3500 meters high.

All peaks are filled with ice and on the flat plains are also covered by ice.

New Horizons has delivered many unique pictures of the passage in July, but the earlier footage was taken from a different angle.

These new ones were taken at a distance of approximately 18,000 kilometers.
