CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. -- NASA showed some incredible pictures it has from Pluto.

It's a video that is made up of more than 100 high-resolution images taken by the New Horizons spacecraft.

The images were taken over a six-month period as the spacecraft flew by Pluto in July 2015.

It took New Horizons nearly 10 years to make its trip of 3 billion miles to get there.

Pluto used to be known as the ninth planet from the sun, but scientists have reclassified it as "dwarf planet."
