Imaging More Mountains On Mysterious Pluto

New Horizons spotted another mountain range on Pluto.
This new mountain range has been observed in the southwestern margin of Pluto's heart shaped Tombaugh Regio (Rombaugh Region) between the bright icy plains and the dark heavily cratered area.
These new peaks are about the same size as the United States' Appalachian Mountains.

This graphic features the larger Norgay Montes (Norgay Mountains) discovered on July 15th which are about the size of the Rocky Mountains which are also in the United States.

Here is a video clip of Norgay Montes
