Sad about Pluto's demise? Go to a wake.

Sad little pluto

The folks at the Minnesota Planatarium are planning a wake due to Pluto's loss of planatary status. Join them at Joe's Garage in Minneapolis on Thursday, August 31 from 7 to 9 p.m.

Join us for a wake in honor of our dearly departed planet Pluto. It was a good planet, and although it will have new life in the ranks of dwarf planets, we'll remember it how it was in its full planetary glory.

We'll also have a telescope on the roof to view the quarter moon. Parke may be persuaded to give a short Eulogy.

Informal and impromptu
Food and drink available for purchase.
Costumes not required but prize for best Pluto costume.
Toasts to Pluto encouraged.

There is something poetic about holding a wake for Pluto, seeing how it was named for the Roman god of the underworld.

i think pluto should remain a planet because it has an atmpsphere
and the gravity to pull it sef into a sphere and it has been called a planet since 1930.
