Welcome to the New Horizons image site, where NASA and the New Horizons mission are happy to provide these JPEG images - displayed in raw form without special processing - for the public to use and enjoy. These JPEGs of images taken by the LOng Range Reconnaissance Imager (LORRI) are generally posted weekly, on Fridays, for the images received at the New Horizons Science Operations Center through the preceding Tuesday at 5 pm EDT. The date/time listed in the image caption is when the picture was taken by the spacecraft, though receipt of the data on Earth could be many days later, depending on when the image is downloaded from New Horizons.
In addition, the fully validated and calibrated images will be made available at NASA's Planetary Data System within nine months to a year after receipt of all images on the ground. In all cases, the images will be available to the public, but please refer to the official New Horizons Image Use Policy for the proper use and referencing of these images.
