Astronomers announced they had spotted a fifth moon orbiting Pluto, which they knew had four. The discovery, made with the Hubble Space Telescope, gives Pluto more moons than Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars combined.

Actually, the discover of P4 last year gave Pluto more moons than Mercury (0), Venus (0), Earth (1), and Mars (2) combined (3).
