A ‘planet parade’ is coming Thursday morning, when Jupiter, Mars, Saturn, and Pluto will line up — here’s how to see it

Jupiter, Mars, Saturn, and Pluto will all line up in the pre-dawn sky on March 8, with the moon lining up between Jupiter and Mars in the early morning.

A new NASA video shows Pluto in exquisite detail

NASA has used data and photos from the New Horizon spacecraft to recreate the most detailed views of Pluto

Thousands of worlds may lurk beyond Pluto — and a stunning new animation shows the ones we’ve found

Pluto is just an icy appetizer for dwarf planets that may exist in the Kuiper Belt.

Pluto is hiding a gigantic liquid ocean you would never, ever want to swim in

Pluto the dwarf planet may hide a very large subsurface ocean, but it's probably no safe haven for life.

A comet strike on Pluto hints it may be hiding a giant, habitable ocean

Pluto the dwarf planet and enigmatic ice ball is probably hiding a very big subsurface ocean, two new studies of a giant comet impact site reveal.

The solar system has at least 8 giant, secret oceans where alien life may exist — here’s where and how big they are

Most water in the solar system isn't on Earth. Some dwarf planets and moons, like Jupiter's icy moon Europa, hide massive oceans — and they might be habitable to extraterrestrial life. Here's how the amount of liquid water and ice on other worlds compares to Earth.
Earth from space looks blue thanks to all of its water.

Earth is a desert planet compared to these ocean worlds in the solar system

Earth seems to have a lot of water, but it's relatively dry compared to other ocean worlds. Jupiter's ice-covered moon Europa has about twice the volume of Earth's liquid water. Its largest moon, Ganymede, may have the biggest ocean in the solar system.

Pluto might be hiding a vast liquid ocean beneath its icy surface

A paper published in Geophysical Research Letters suggests that Pluto might have a subsurface, liquid water ocean.
