NASA has released a new color-enhanced photo to show the different surfaces and the diverse terrain on the dwarf planet.

Using a technique called principal component analysis, the colors highlight the subtle differences between all of the regions on the planet.

The data used for the image was captured back on July 14 from about 22,000 miles away and was just recently enhanced.
