Help Name the Moons of Pluto!

17 February 2013 - 07:03 PM

If you've ever wanted to leave your mark on the heavens, here's your chance.
Astronomers are asking for help in naming two newly discovered moons of Pluto, which currently go by the uninspired monikers P4 and P5.

The tiny satellites were spotted by the Hubble Space Telescope in 2011 and 2012, respectively.
Pluto's three other known moons —Charon, Nix and Hydra — are named for Greek mythological characters associated with the underworld. The short list of names that interested members of the public can vote on for the new moons follow that same pattern, researchers said.

You can choose a name on the list or choose to write in a name - (Names for the moons of Pluto must come from Greek or Roman mythology and must be related to Pluto/Hades and the underworld.)

Vote as often as you like but only once a day.
