That's No Moon!
I figured this was coming after the story I linked to yesterday about the two new tiny, tiny Saturnian moons that Cassini has discovered. Astronomers are raising the question of what exactly constitutes a moon. Just as Sedna and Quaoar (and Pluto)are making us reconsider definitions for what a planet is, these two rocks are forewarning of an approaching time when, without a limitation on what a moon is, hundreds more moons may be added to our solar system's roster.
