Help Name The 2 New Moons Of Pluto

plutoTwo new moons have recently been found orbiting Pluto and you can give your 2 cents on what to call them at Pick your two choices from a list or fill out a write-in ballot. Voting ends at noon EST on Monday, February 25th, 2013.

Images taken by the Hubble Space Telescope in 2011 and 2012 revealed two previously unknown moons of Pluto. So far, we have been calling them “P4” and “P5”, but the time has come to give them permanent names. If it were up to you, what would you choose? By tradition, the names of Pluto’s moons come from Greek and Roman mythology, and are related to the ancient tales about Hades and the Underworld. 
Please pick your favorites on the ballot HERE.
