Pluto was discovered in 1930 and was originally known as the ninth planet. But, questions were raised about its status after 1992. In 1992, it was reclassified as a dwarf planet. Obviously, the interesting fact about Pluto is its size. The distance from Northern California to Maine is 2,900 miles. But, Pluto is just 1400 miles across.
