Pictures of Pluto – level 1

17-08-2017 07:00

Pluto is a “dwarf planet” – it is very small. A man discovered Pluto in 1930. Pluto is 7.2 billion kilometres from the earth.

For a long time, we did not have good pictures of Pluto. Now, a spacecraft flies by. It takes great pictures.

There is a video in the Level 3 section. It shows pictures of Pluto. The first picture is old, and it is not good. The last picture is the newest. It is a good picture.

Difficult words: discover (to find), earth (our planet), did (past of “to do”).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
