Pluto now has 5 moons

Pluto may no longer be a planet but it has got more moons then our earth, it has a list of 5 moons including the 5th one, which is recently discovered by Hubble Space Telescope. Charon was the first moon discovered back in 1978, the next two moons Nix and Hydra caught our eyes in 2006, then the forth moon P4 was discovered last year in 2011 and finally another one with the name P5.


Pluto is growing a good list of moons and theoretically Pluto got these moons with collisions with objects form the Kuiper belt, a part at the end of our solar system that contains small, icy objects.
Who knows may be there are more, we might be able to find some more moons of the tiny Ex-Planet Pluto in the coming year.
