New Horizons really has proved to be an extraordinary little craft!!! Though I have to stretch my imagination to see that 'bump on the side of the star' but it will only get better as it get nearer. Only 4 months to wait.

I love the fact that it will be flying past on New Years day!

Fascinating. It's great how we just keep finding more mysteries to unpick! Really looking forward to this one; to get such a close look at such a distant object is real privilege. My only worry is that if it is the cloud of dust scenario it might frustrate our attempts to get a good look.
