Where Is New Horizons Now?

Computer-generated images show the location of New Horizons in the solar system.

Featured Images
LORRI Images from the Pluto Encounter

View images taken by the LOng Range Reconnaissance Imager (LORRI) on the New Horizons spacecraft. LORRI is the most sensitive and highest resolution imager aboard New Horizons.

Eyes on the Solar System

Using Eyes on the Solar System and simulated data from the New Horizons flight team you can ride onboard the spacecraft using "Eyes on Pluto" on your Mac or PC.

NASA EDGE

In recognition of New Horizons' upcoming closest approach to Pluto, NASA EDGE sets out on their own parallel mission to Pluto, West Virginia. Along their journey, NASA EDGE interviews experts involved with this amazing mission, and they even meet the authors and illustrator of the popular children's book, "Pluto's Secret." Franklin talks to people on the street about Pluto's planetary status, and despite the Co-Host's struggles with basic navigation, both missions are right on track.

Kuiper Belt Extended Mission Decal

NASA's New Horizons spacecraft reached Pluto and its moons in July 2015, revolutionizing our understanding of these mysterious worlds on the outer edge of our solar system. On New Year's Day 2019, a billion miles beyond Pluto, New Horizons will fly past a small, frozen Kuiper Belt object named 2014 MU69 - the most distant object ever explored by a spacecraft.

NASA, the Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) and the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) lead the New Horizons mission in collaboration with additional government, university and industry partners.
