This is a view of what no man has seen before. NASA has released a video made from images of the New Horizons spacecraft's July 2015 flyby of Pluto.

"The animation, made with real images taken by New Horizons, begins with Pluto flying in for its close-up on July 14; we then pass behind Pluto and see the atmosphere glow in sunlight before the sun passes behind Charon," NASA said. "The movie ends with New Horizons' departure, looking back on each body as thin crescents."
