At 7:49 a.m. ET this morning, the spacecraft New Horizon ‘s traveled 3 billion miles and passed by the furthest planet in our solar system, Pluto. NASA ‘s spacecraft snapped a few photos of the mysterious and far-out planet and the internet is eating them up!

People are absolutely loving the closeups, citing how stunning and gorgeous the small planet is.

Congratulations, @NASA. Pluto is beautiful. Thank you

Well, mostly everyone. Of course, if there is something online that some people are praising, the other half of the internet has to tear it down, lest it get too full of itself.
So, basically, Pluto is getting the full ’21st-century woman” treatment!
Pluto: the planet next door, the plain planet, the big ball of crap

I wasn't expecting a beauty like Saturn, and I'm glad for the mission, but Pluto's kinda blah — like Mercury's mousy hipster stepsister

I'm just gonna say it……Pluto is ugly. It's like that chick you see from far away and are intrigued until you get close enough

I don't like the color of Pluto. It seems plain, boring, vanilla. Meh.

Wow Pluto is the Marla Hooch of the solar system. HD is not its friend. Ugly POS. Glad it's not a planet anymore.

You hear that, Pluto! People think you ‘re ugly and stupid and aren ‘t even taking the time to get to know the dwarf-planet you are. There may be more to you than your strange heart birthmark and dimpled terrain, but the internet doesn ‘t care!
Welcome to the scrutiny of the internet and we are so sorry this is your first impression upon meeting Planet Earth. We have some good things going for us, we promise, it ‘s just we ‘re still figuring out how to be nice on the internet.
