Cast Your Vote for Planet Pluto

Dr. Ken Croswell, astronomer and author of Ten Worlds, a new book on the solar system packed with beautiful images and up-to-date information, has written an article in Highlights for Children commemorating the 80th anniversary of Pluto's discovery, which is coming up on February 18.

Until the end of February, Highlights for Children is conducting a poll on Pluto's planethood.  Anyone--child or adult--may vote (once only!) at http://www.highlightskids.com/Survey/plutoSurvey/h3plutoSurvey.asp . So cast your vote for Planet Pluto! Who needs the IAU anyway?

I will post a book review on Ten Worlds in an upcoming message.
