The Daily Mirror wrote:ISIS supporters call for Pluto to be renamed 'The Moon of Mohammed'

In a post seen by more than 5,000 people, a supporter of the so-called Islamic State said the famous "heart" on the surface of Pluto was actually a message written in the style of the 'I heart New York' t-shirts.

The unnamed writer said two Arabic words could be spotted on either side of the heart.

"When we look carefully at this photo of Pluto, we will notice an Arabic sentence which means Allah loves Mohammed," the ISIS propagandist claimed.

"Since the heart is so big, that means 'so much love or 'God loves Mohammed so much'.

"These were made by God almighty on the surface of Pluto."

The Islamic State astronomer also claimed to have seen the Arabic word for Mohammed in NASA close-up photographs showing the surface of Pluto and Charon, one of its moons.

Not quite the colors your eyes would see apparently.
Rather than providing RGB images, however, the new batch has data on red, blue, and infrared. So it's not full color yet, but you can revel in the fact you're looking at information that your eyes can't actually see.
ETA: Possibly even higher-res version here:

This color image of Pluto taken by NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft shows rounded and bizarrely textured mountains, informally named the Tartarus Dorsa, that rise up along Pluto’s terminator and show intricate but puzzling patterns of blue-gray ridges and reddish material in between. This view, roughly 330 miles (530 kilometers) across, combines blue, red and infrared images taken by the Ralph/Multispectral Visual Imaging Camera (MVIC) on July 14, 2015, and resolves details and colors on scales as small as 0.8 miles (1.3 kilometers).
