NASA's Pluto-bound New Horizons spacecraft has captured a stunning image of the planet Neptune.

The spacecraft launched in 2006 and is now nearly 2.75 million miles from Earth!

It's New Horizons' last major crossing on its way to becoming the first craft to make a close encounter with the unexplored Pluto.  

That's set for next summer.
