NASA video lets you soar over Pluto, and it's pretty amazingWant to know what Pluto’s terrain looks like? Spoiler alert: It’s really cool.  Using data from the New Horizons spacecraft and digital elevation models of both the planet and its largest moon, Charon, scientists were able to develop these awesome flyover movies. SEE ALSO: NASA's newest treasure trove of alien planets will help us find our place in the galaxy A flight over Pluto shows the highlands and the planet's nitrogen icy plain, Sputnik Planitia. Viewers then get to see the planet's mountain ranges, the highlands of Voyager Terra, and Pioneer Terra. It eventually concludes over Tartarus Dorsa.  The view itself is pretty spectacular, but it also gives us a newer, more unique perspective on Pluto's terrain.  And that isn't all, either.  There's also a flight over Charon that shows the Serenity Chasma canyon, and the Dorothy Gale crater.  Viewers also get a glimpse of the plains of Vulcan Planum and the “moated mountains” of Clarke Montes.  The New Horizons spacecraft made its flight around Pluto on July 14, 2015. It was the first time scientists were able to get up-close photos of Pluto, and collect data. To celebrate the anniversary, scientists released detailed maps of both Pluto and Charon.  WATCH: Neil deGrasse Tyson on why Titan is his favorite moon
