New Horizons became the first spacecraft to visit Pluto and its entourage of moons. It took dramatic pictures which provided new high definition data of Pluto.

The amazing images show a near-sunset view of the icy mountains on the distant planet. The spacecraft captured the photographs from a distance of 17,703 kilometres.

Difficult words: entourage (a group), sunset (the time in the evening when the sun goes down), distant (far away).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
