Pluto and Charon
== [[Charon|Pluto and Charon]] ==
:In real life, Pluto and Charon are '''TWO DIFFERENT THINGS!!!''' Pluto is a dwarf planet, while Charon is ''the moon'' which orbits the planet. Therefore, please stop adding that untrue trivia bit to [[Charon]]'s page. Thank you. --'''[[User:Theryguy512|<span style="color:#FF7F00">Theryguy</span>]][[User Talk:Theryguy512|<span style="color:#5C8CFA">512</span>]]''' 21:11, 8 April 2009 (UTC)
::In reality it wasn't untrue, just unclear. A standard way of referring to the natural satellites of solar system objects is to use the form <primary> (<discovery order>). Thus, Charon is Pluto (I), while Nix is Pluto (II) and Hydra is Pluto (III). Comparatively, Luna is Earth (I), and Phobos and Diemos are Mars (I) and Mars (II) respectively.
