This animation shows newly discovered, surprisingly fast rates at which the small moons of Pluto—Styx, Nix, Kerberos, and Hydra—rotate and orbit the dwarf planet and its relatively large companion moon Charon. Rotation rates range from once per 5.33 hours for Kerberos to once every 26 minutes for Hydra. This movie plays at 1.5 Earth days per second.
