(CNN NEWSOURCE) NASA has released a new image of Pluto’s North Pole.

The space agency's New Horizons spacecraft took the photo.

While the earth's North Pole is known for its frozen temperatures-- Pluto’s North Pole is covered in frozen canyons.

You can see the canyons in the picture. They are the yellow parts in the image.

The long canyons run vertically across the polar area and the widest canyon is about 45 miles wide and runs close to the North Pole.
