This article written in 1999 describes what happens every nineteen years. Pluto (before it was deemed a dwarf planet) becomes the eighth planet and Neptune becomes the ninth. This article is about the unvisited then planet and its moon called Charon. Now that it is a dwarf planet we can see it closer to the sun in 2018.
