CLEVELAND - It may not be a "true" planet anymore but Pluto has something even Earth and some of its neighboring planets cannot boast about, five moons.
Astronomers captured images of what they say is a fifth moon orbiting the dwarf planet by using the Hubble Space Telescope.
Pluto's fourth moon was just discovered last year. The two newest moons do not have names yet. The other three are called Charon, Nix and Hydra.
Nasa's space probe, "New Horizons" is scheduled to pass by Pluto three years from now in July 2015. Scientists hope it will provide valuable new information on the Pluto system.
