Developed by the New Horizons science team, so that people could experience the approximate sunlight level on Pluto at noon-generally around dawn or dusk on Earth.

Thousands of those submissions have now been assembled into three stunning mosaics of Pluto, Charon, and a combined image of the two. The mosaics include not only dim skies on Earth, but famous landmarks, selfies, and even family pets.
