The Color

The color of Pluto is brown because there is a layer of transparent ice covering pluto which makes it look brown instead of blue.

The Speed It Moves

It takes Pluto 248 Earth years to orbit ONCE around the sun. The reason it takes that long is because it is the farthest planet from the sun so it has a longer distance to go around the sun compared to a planet that is closer to the sun.

Special Features

Pluto is known for having 5 moons. They are Charon, Styx, Nix, Kerberos, and Hydra. Another fact is scientists have stopped calling Pluto a planet because it is now known as "dwarf planet". A dwarf planet orbits the sun just like all the other planets, but it is smaller. A dwarf planet is so small it cannot clear other objects out of it's path.

Living Things

Nothing can live on Pluto because of it's rediculously cold weather and even if there was things living on Pluto they would not be able to survive for even 1 hour. They would die of getting so cold.
