Pluto's Moons

Pluto's Twins Get Their Names: As the linked article reports, the two new moons of Pluto that were discovered last year are going to receive the official names of Nix and Hydra.

Thanks to shsilver for the link.

And in other news, I still could use assistance in creating a real webpage and finding a host for http://www.plutoisaplanet.org. I envision a front page with pictures, information about our Society for the Preservation of Pluto as a Planet, links to approrpiate pages, arguments in favor, and a donations button to help support our cause.

We should talk...
Excellent! I can call tonight...
cnoocy pointed out in email that the official spelling "Nix" is actually Latin for "snow" which is oddly appropriate.
IIRC, according to Greek Mythology, Nyx was the Goddess of Night.

Where did I leave my Bullfinch's . . .
You know elyse did my site, right? She's fabulous and cheap (although you may be looking for free) - lemme know if you haven't found a place and I'll hook you up. :D
I may have another lead, but if that doesn't pan out, I'll be in touch...
I'd have gone with a familial connection--Nix and Erebus, perhaps. Ah well!
