What is Pluto like?

Question asked by: knowitall

Pluto is a planet but its planetary status has been disputed with the discovery of thousands of similar lumps of rock, some bigger than Pluto, at a much greater distance from the sun.

The orbit of Pluto is very long indeed - 248 years in fact!

It is a small planet and sometimes its orbit comes inside that of Neptune hence at times it is really the 8th planet rather than the 9th!

Pluto is believed to mainly be made of ice and rock.
