NASA's New Horizon spacecraft has captured a curious-looking object, bearing a striking resemblance to a snail on Pluto's icy plains.
The latest image was taken during the spacecraft's closest approach to the planet in July.
According to the space agency, the "polygonal or cellular pattern of the plains" is due to a deep layer of mobile nitrogen ice being churned.
This particular image shows an area 50 miles wide and 400 miles long, taken from a range of 10,000 miles. Seriously cool, we know.
