Pluto & Charon gibbous
This is how Pluto and its largest moon Charon might appear from a distance of about 6,000 miles from Pluto's surface.
While little is known about Pluto's appearance, here this Kuiper belt dwarf planet is realized as a frozen world covered with various ices, hosting a thin atmosphere of nitrogen, methane and other hydrocarbons too possibly, with a significantly weathered surface as Pluto's 248-year orbit alternately brings it closer then further from the warmth of the sun.
