The New Horizon’s space craft will fly by Pluto on July 14, 2015.  Above photo is from early July and a composite by NASA and Google Earth.

From the NASA fact sheet on the New Horizon’s mission:

The New Horizons mission will help us understand
worlds at the edge of our solar system by making
the first reconnaissance of the Pluto system and by
venturing deeper into the distant, mysterious Kuiper
Belt – a relic of solar system formation…

…closest approach (to Pluto) occurs on July 14, 2015.
