Pluto Discovered 75 Years Ago - PCstats.com Pluto Discovered 75 Years Ago

I was away on last Friday so I didn't get to post this but on Feb 18th, it was the 75th anniversary of Pluto's discovery.

The planet Pluto turns 75 this month. Clyde Tombaugh discovered the ninth planet in the solar system on the afternoon of February 18, 1930 while he meticulously examined a pair of deep sky photographs at Lowell Observatory. Tombaugh exposed the photographs on two nights in late January using the Observatory's 13-inch Abbott Lawrence Lowell Telescope. Then, as part of the carefully planned and executed planet search, Tombaugh "blinked" the two exposures using a machine called a comparator, looking for motion of objects captured on film.
