TOPSHOTS This NASA image captured by NASA's New Horizons spacecraft released October 15, 2015 shows combined blue, red and infrared images taken by the Ralph/Multispectral Visual Imaging Camera (MVIC).

Pluto contains a rich variety of colors on its surface, according to the observations from NASA's New Horizons probe and its first published science results Thursday. From dark red parts at the equator of the dwarf planet to lighter and bluer regions at higher latitudes, the findings have stunned astronomers.  "I was astonished to see such spectacular surface color and geological diversity," said Silvia Protopapa, an assistant research scientist in astronomy at the University of Maryland and part of the New Horizons surface composition team.
