orbit milestone

Learned that the New Horizons probe passed the orbit of Neptune. Curiously, almost to the day, 25 years previously, that Voyager 2 flew the blue gas giant. The New Horizons craft will be put back to sleep again to save power. Still on target for a July 2015 arrival to Pluto and its litter of moons.
