File:Pluto-Charon double planet.png


English: The Pluto– Charon system. Charon's orbit around Pluto is shown in green. Pluto's orbit around the Pluto–Charon system barycentre is shown in red. This shows that Pluto orbits a point outside itself. This is why Pluto and Charon are sometimes considered to be a double dwarf planet. The three small satellites of the Pluto–Charon system, Nix, S/2011 P 1, and Hydra, are not shown. The image is probably a side view rather than a top view.
