Moons of Pluto

I know it’s not technically a planet any more, but it was for most of my life, and it has moons, so it counts for this series. Pluto has three known moons.

Charon
Nix
Hydra

Fun fact: Pluto and Charon are tidally locked with each other, which means the same side of each always face each other. Earth’s moon is tidally locked with Earth, but it isn’t mutual as in the case of Pluto and Charon.
