Good to know: Pluto moons

Post by someday »

It could come up!

Pluto's smallest moons are now named Kerberos (formerly P4) and Styx (formerly P5) after the online voting contest "Pluto Rocks."

(The name "Vulcan" lost even though it got the most votes.)

The larger three moons are Nix, Hydra and Charon.
