As New Horizons passes each planet's orbit on the way to Pluto, check back here to see where the planet was when our intrepid spacecraft zoomed by.
New Horizons crossed the orbit of Uranus at approximately 6 p.m. EDT on March 18, 2011, with the spacecraft more than 1.8 billion miles (nearly 2.9 billion kilometers) from Earth. Uranus was 2.4 billion miles (3.8 billion kilometers) from New Horizons at the time and the spacecraft was cruising in electronic sleep mode.
New Horizons crosses the orbit of Neptune on August 25, 2014 — exactly 25 years after Voyager 2 made its historic exploration of that giant planet.
Pluto: July 14, 2015
