As of 2014, Pluto has five recognized moons. The largest moon, Charon, was discovered in 1978, followed by the discoveries of Nix and Hydra in 2005, Kerberos in 2011 and Styx in 2012. Pluto may have as many as 10 moons.

Pluto is 4.67 billion miles away from Earth. At a certain condition, the two celestial bodies are only 2.66 billion miles apart. NASA sent the New Horizons spacecraft on a mission to visit Pluto, and it is expected to reach the Pluto-Charon system 11 years after its tak...

Pluto orbits the sun in a little over 90,553 Earth days, which is almost 248 Earth years. One day on Pluto is approximately equal to six and a half days on Earth, so a year on Pluto contains around 14,164 Plutonian days, also referred to as solar days.
