  • The bright “heart” is about 1,200 miles (2,000 km) wide.
  • To its left lies an 1,860-mile-long (3,000 km) dark patch along Pluto’s equator that mission scientists are calling “the whale.”
  • Pluto was assigned dwarf planet in the year 2006.
  • It is the tenth-most-massive known body directly orbiting the Sun.
