Is Pluto still a planet?
21 Dec 06
YES pluto is still a planet but now it is in category of the "dwarf planets". At an average distance of over three billion miles from the Sun, Pluto is very much off by itself. Pluto is so small that six moons of the solar system are larger than this small planet. Pluto has three moons. Charon, which was discovered in 1978, and two other moons called Nix and Hydra, which were discovered in 2005.
