Pluto by Alpha-Element Pluto by Alpha-Element
:)!!!!!PLEASE DOWNLOAD FOR BEST QUALITY AND DETAIL!!!!!

:D!!!!!PLEASE READ THE DESCRIPTION IF YOU CAN!!!!!:D

:)!!!!!PLEASE COMMENT IF YOU CAN. THEY ARE MUCH APPRECIATED!!!!!:)


hello!:) here, i have recreated the plutonian system in my depiction of it!:D

Pluto

In the scene, we watch the dwarf planet in the sky from orbit around its second closest and second largest moon, Nix, with Pluto's largest moon, Charon, in the front of Pluto.
In the background and near the top of the image, we see Hydra, the third largest and farthest moon from Pluto.
P4 (S/2011 P1), Pluto's third closest and smallest moon, is seen in the background nearer to it than Hydra.
P4 was recently discovered on July 20th 2011, giving Pluto a total of 4 moons!
yay for Pluto!:D



just in case your wondering, the system is tilted at that angle in the scene because thats the way it actually is in real life!
pluto's axial tilt is 120, thus its north pole is actually pointing to the bottom left of the image!
when the system is viewed like this from earth, its moons would orbit clockwise instead of counter clockwise!

its unfortunate though, that we won't be able to see the real plutonian system until the year 2015!:(

but again, all great things come in time!:)

i hope you guys also like it and comment if you can, i would really like to know your thoughts on the scene!:)

Ah, but a 5th satellite (S/2012 P5) of Pluto exists (between 6 and 15 miles in diameter), as documented in the Oct. 2012 Sky & Telescope, pg. 14. It orbits closer 26,000 miles) to Pluto than Nix, Hydra, and P4, and is of incredible faint magnitude 27.

I love space. A lot.
I also love tiny things with significance.
If you ever do another one of these, might I recommend doing Sedna?
All of these are perfect okay
