Pluto Has Three Moons, Hubble Images Show

Pluto has three moons, not one, new images from the Hubble Space Telescope show. Pluto, discovered as the ninth planet in 1930, was thought to be alone until its moon Charon was spotted in 1978. The new moons, more than twice as far away and many times fainter, were spotted by Hubble in May.
While the observations have to be confirmed, members of the team that discovered the satellites said Monday they felt confident about their data.
“Pluto and Charon are not alone, they have two neighbors,” said Hal Weaver of the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory.
