Percival Lowell, The ORIGINAL ‘Mr. Planet X’ & Pluto’s Godfather Was Born Today, 162-Years Ago; March 13, 1855.

As with the discoveries of Pluto and Uranus I talk about Percival Lowell, at length in my 2011 paperback & e-book “Devanee’s Book of Dwarf Planets“ (which is definitely worth looking at (even if I say so myself)).
