Pluto has spots!

Dark spots like Jupiter and Neptune, that is! These newly discovered spots are continuing to intrigue and fascinate astronomers and scientists alike.

Dark spots very much NOT like those of Jupiter and Neptune! (yeah, I know I'm being picky...) I'm guessing the colour variations will be resurfacing driven by tidal stresses from Charon or from cryovolcanism involving subsurface nitrogen... but it definitely won't be anything at all like a giant storm system. ;)
