--- Edit on 3 -30-2015
updated for the new leapsecond

BUT for some reason ( one that comes out of the SOUTH end of a North facing cow )
Google docs wants to server out MICROSOFT MS office ©™ *.DOCX ©™ formatted files
docx files have the VERY WRONG formatting to them and NEVER will work

Because of this the ssc files are NOW zipped

-- Google drive " PlutoCharon.ssc"
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B6ZYAd ... sp=sharing



yes it is a KBO but historically a planet ( minor planet)
so it dose not fit any place .

You will need from PDS the "plu043.bsp" kernel
ftp://naif.jpl.nasa.gov/pub/naif/generi ... satellites
-- direct link --
ftp://naif.jpl.nasa.gov/pub/naif/generi ... plu043.bsp


now this one DOSE REQUIRE a minor edit on the default "/data/solarsys.ssc"
this
Code:

#ReferencePoint "Pluto-Charon" "Sol"
#{
#    CustomOrbit "pluto"
#
#   # Make the orbit and label visible
#    Visible true
#    Clickable true
#}

comment out the Pluto-Charon reference point

Hydra and Nix are in "/data/numberedmoons.ssc"
but i am using the "replace" option so it dose not matter

replaced "plu042.bsp" with "plu043.bsp"

and the spice start start time moved from
Ending "1900 02 02 00:00:41.184" # add 1 month
---------- to this -----------
Ending "1900 02 07 00:00:41.184" # add 1 month
