"Movie Posters" for NASA planetary missions

In the next few years, several NASA missions to the outer solar system will be arriving at their destinations: New Horizons flies by Pluto in 2015, and Juno enters orbit around Jupiter in 2016. 

These two spacecraft also have fairly distinctive silhouettes, and I thought I could highlight them and their destinations with some moody backlighting. So I made these two posters:

New Horizons in the Pluto system
