5:23 pm
bribing row cam of what really the viewership, and the space shuttle experts out there. and i think it is really a division on is pluto a planetlae or is pluto not a real planet?t? and so i came out to the air and space museum. wonderful exhibit.ibit covers all of the planets,, talks a lot about this. so just come out. not just pluto, but listen, i want to show this real quick. this is new horizon.izon >> this was launched, and itnd i is deep explorer. exp and it is pick up on a lot of o new pictures from pluto. and a lot of evidence out there. and you agree? they're thinking ofan nasa, that why in the world was pluto w ever givenas the distinction of a dwarf planet? like it has got to be -- it fits all of the parameters, so they come up with new definition, i'm telling you right now, most of the people p we talked to today, they're glad about that. >> what do you know about pluto the planet? pl dwarf planet? more we grew up with it, just wantg
5:24 pm
same, you know, the way they used to be. >> through all of the probes we sent out into space, the one that went off in the solar system it, actually saw pluto. and given that, i think it deserves to be called a planet too. plus i grew one it, it screwst up my whole thing of the solar system. it was a nine now a oh, my goodness.s. >> now they may add a tenth. >> i think it would be reallylly cool because pluto is like a planet. well, it was a planet. and i think that was really cool. but then it was sad when they took it away because now it matches up to everything. >> you know, really does, it was nine, number nine, now it i is not, now eight planets. now but again nasa, nasa really thinks it should be made a big boy planet again, back to number nine. the astronomers took the distinction of planet away, made it a dwarf planet.
5:25 pm
so actually the planetary scientists hold on, we are the ones who should make this distinction, so what they've done, i have to read this to you, okay? they came one new definition, now, listen to this, the new proposal is a planet in a substellar math body never undergone nuclear vision, and it has sufficient self graph takes to assume a shape absolutely and adequately described by triaxial, blah, blah, blah watch it means is this. it has to beah ws is round. it has to be smaller than a star. not a new tron star. not a black hole. so i'm sure, jim, sarah, these,h were the things that you guyss were debating. correct?co >> oh, intensely. >> so that means that's whatt' it means to be a dwarf planet? is that description?tion i'm lost here. >> no, no, no. they say it was a dwarf planet because it didn't have -- it didn't hold anything in its neighborhood. planetly didn't have or moons orbiting around it. and it was way too far away. and another thing, too, this
5:26 pm
it will take quite a while.hile but who knows. >> one thing that screws up remember growing up theyhingwing taught you the planets, it is pa my very excellent mother just served us nine pizzas, which is was -- >> oh,. >> without pluto now my mother served us nachos? who knows. >> it does mess everything up, , like the guy you talked tonight not right. >> thank you, guard. >> i needs to come back to thett planet. again. >> coming up at 5:30, what happened to nora mia after the t early morning hours after she talked with someone ing ho her apartment building. she was never seen again. we rewind to the crime. a warning tonight for people using atm machines after this skimming device was found inside a 7-eleven atm. finds out if you may have been a victim coming up. hey, fitz. >> reporter: sarah, good evening, air b andepor b a brave new world in how to stay in a city? but others say it might be simply that needs moree

thank you for sending us your gorgeous picture, if you get a great picture like that one, o be sure to send it to me. i would love to see it. meanwhile, let me get caught c up what we can expect. we'll keep the clouds around, even spotty areas of drizzle d late tonight, tomorroworro morning. but if we have clouds or even little bit every drizzle. that will only last through t the morning hours, because sun will try to break back through t for wednesday afternoon, and as that happens, we will see our temperatures soaring into the 60satures tomorrow, but 70sa on the way for thursday,y, friday. we are talking about potentially record breakingg temperatures thursday, friday,ra and maybe a thunderstorm on saturday, and it could be a strong one, as well, becauseause if we're going to see things getting about 15, 20 degrees above normal between wednesday t and saturday day, with the warmest days being thursday and friday. so, windows open weatherer unless you're bothered by tree pollen. which was high today. t and will likely remain high all week. so, we're talking about possibly breaking records.. wednesday's high of 77, was w the record, n
5:46 pm
that one. i don't think. thursday, 78 degrees. friday, 78.. these are the current records. what is the possibility of hitting them? unlikely for wednesday, we will go 67 tomorrow. thursday, 75. friday, 76. 76. so we could challenge them thursday and friday. fri and we do have cloud cover cov around tonight. the bulk of the moisture you see here, is not going to get in. but we could have just littletle bit of patchy drizzle here and there, as high pressure is going to be singing down tosi the and might allow a little bit of light moisture to come in overcast for sure. better chance of seeing some more measurable rain with the south and west of dc. keeps us in the four's, again aa can't rule out the possibility after little bit of drizzle. we're at 55 degrees right now, we head for the 40's tonight, t should be pretty comfortable. but warmer air, showing up, u just down to the south and wells, and that's what we're going to be able to tap going so, let's tap in to the seven day t forecast, my accuweather, 75 degrees, thursday maybe couple of showers around, ies, think the showers thursday, t maybe some early morning drizzle would be later in the evening, 7:00, 8:00. dry friday,
5:47 pm
