The photo broke the record of a photo named "Pale Blue Spot" by NASA's Voyager spacecraft that showed the world 6,06 billion kilometers away on February 14, 1990.
New Horizons broke his own record only two hours later, photographing the sky objects "2012 HZ84" and "2012 HE85" on the Kuiper belt. The two photographs became the images taken at the farthest point of space.

By correcting the farthest route to date made on December 9th, the satellite will make a new journey to switch near the celestial body "2014 MU69" in Kuiper Belt, 1.6 billion kilometers of dwarf planet Pluto on 1 January 2019 He had begun.
The satellite will observe more than 20 asteroids, dwarf planets and a half-axis outer planet group called the "centaur" during the discovery journey in the Kuiper Belt.
