Animation of the dwarf planet Pluto and its moon Charon. Pluto was visited by the New Horizons spacecraft on 14th July 2015. The visit revealed a complex surface that looked geologically young. Pluto was considered a planet until 2006, when the discovery of numerous similar objects led to its reclassification as a dwarf planet. Charon, its largest moon, is half a wide as Pluto itself, and one eighth of the mass.
