Here is something fun!  Astronomers are asking for help in naming two newly discovered moons of Pluto.  The tiny satellites were spotted by the Hubble Space Telescope back in 2011 & 2012.  Pluto has three other known moons, called Charon, Nix and Hydra.  The three names are taken from Greek mythology.  Click on the link below to view the names being considered and vote for your favorite.
