Winter on Pluto
Pluto is an extremely cold world where frozen nitrogen, carbon monoxide and methane may blanket the surface like snow during most of its 248 year "plutonian" year. These ices have been transformed from white to a pinkish-brown due to interactions with gamma rays from deep space and the distant Sun. The average surface temperature - 350º F.
