After 3 billion miles and 9 years - the New Horizons probe now has less than a million miles and 24 hours to go until it arrives at Pluto tomorrow morning at 7:49 am EDT!

Pictures take time to transmit from that distance; but we'll start seeing the first of the closest approach pictures tomorrow on the net. Also PBS's NOVA has a special episode with all the best available pics of Pluto and it's moon Charon on Wednesday night at 9 pm.
