The craterless surface is divided into irregularly-shaped segments and appears to be no more than 100 million years old. It is possiblky still being shaped by geologic processes. Image obtained by the spacecraft's Long Range Reconnaissance Imager (LORRI) on the 14th July 2015, at a distance of 77,000 kilometres from Pluto.
