I don't mean to sound rude, but "renderings" is in the title of your submission...

Those are large regions of artistic license.

They look like oceans. Perhaps the lifeblood of our new Plutonian overlords

"How dare the Earthlings reclassify mighty Pluto as a puny proto-planet!"

So when do we look at Charon and realize it's a Mass Relay?

Also, I never expected Pluto to be so...brown. The blurry satellite images surprised me.

I was under the understanding that Pluto didn't have an atmosphere and therefore didn't maintain such a halo. Am I wrong here, or did the artist just take a lot of creative leeway with the renderings?

It doesn't look like a place that is -229C, then again I always pictured it looking like Hoth or something. Very neat.
