ATLANTA -

Want a chance at naming Pluto's two tiniest moons? The moons were discovered over the last two years and scientists have set up a contest to allow you to name them.

Right now, the two moons are known as P4 and P5.

What's the catch? You'll need to know a bit about Greek and Roman mythology. The choices: Acheron, Alecto, Cerberus, Erebus, Eurydice, Hercules, Hypnos, Lethe, Obol, Orpheus, Persephone, and Styx.

You can vote to name the moons on plutorocks.com until noon EST on Feb. 25. Write-in ballots are also encouraged.

Good luck!
