This image, taken early the morning of July 11, 2015, shows newly-resolved linear features above the equatorial region that intersect, suggestive of polygonal shapes.

This is the last portrait of Pluto? Or just the latest portrait?

July 11, 2015

Not the last. Meaning final. 

I ask because I look at everything from the perspective of looking at it again a year from now.
