My Notes:

Pluto

  Pluto is the planet furthest from the sun and also the smallest in the solar system.

Pluto is smaller than some moons.

Pluto has an extremely elliptical orbit which causes it to slip inside of Neptune's orbit every 248 years and remain on the inside for 20 years.

Many scientists don't consider Pluto a planet at all.

Charon is Pluto's only natural satellite.

Because of similarities in atmosphere, mass, and composition between the two stellar objects, many scientists consider Pluto and Charon to be a double planet system.

Both have atmospheres made of nitrogen and methane and it is theorized that they may, in fact, share their atmosphere.

Being so far away from the sun, it is very cold on Pluto; the cold dense air can freeze and fall like snow.
