What is Pluto Day?

Pluto Day is the observance of the dwarf planet’s, Pluto, discovery on February 18th. On February 18, 1930 American astronomer Clyde William Tombaugh officially discovered Pluto at Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff, Arizona. This adds Pluto to the solar system we all know today which consists of our Sun and many other planets, moons, and astronomical objects.

However, in 2006, the International Astronomical Union reduced Pluto’s status saying that it didn’t meet the criteria to be considered a full-sized planet. Although it's not considered a planet anymore, it is still important in astrology🧑‍🚀


Why is Pluto Day Important?

It celebrates astronomy. Without astronomy we would not know the ins and outs of how our own planet operates or even know that there are things bigger than us outside of our atmosphere. It helps us reflect on our existence and appreciate Earth more. As we should since the planet is the place we call home.


Here’s a reminder for all our Earthlings:

Don't feel small. We all have

been demoted. Go on being”
