Xena has a moon!

Our solar system’s probably 10th planet, Xena, has a moon!

Xena, the possible 10th planet in our solar system, has its own moon, a dim little satellite called Gabrielle, its discoverers reported.

Astronomers who reported Xena’s discovery in July said they detected Xena’s sidekick on September 10 using the Keck Observatory on Mauna Kea in Hawaii. Their findings will be submitted to the Astrophysical Journal Letters on Monday.

Pity the name is so silly.
