Default Dancing In the (Pluto) Moonlight...

...courtesy of NASA's New Horizons space probe : here's a quick look at Pluto and Charon! Blink, though, and you'll miss it (it's only 4 or 5 seconds); but the word is, we'll get an even better look at them come this time next year...

Default What are the chances......

boatshewsd2, good to see you posting, and thanks for drawing our attention to this latest piece of astronomical information. Out of the mere 9 planets in our system, there's chance that Pluto's a double dwarf - so if we consider the infinite number of planets out there, what else could be going on, what other amazing phenomena could be happening?

Thanks again and kindest regards

Patrick

There are only officially 8 planets in the solar system as Pluto got downgraded a few years ago.
