[[ScienceMarchesOn Back when it had its planetary status]], Pluto was often depicted as blue. This most likely had to do with the cold nature of the stellar body, but was probably helped by being near the truly blue Uranus and Neptune. It wasn't until photos came back from New Horizons that Pluto was revealed to be brown. People on social media invoked this trope by (often jokingly) insisting the dwarf planet was blue.

Throughout the universe, stars can be violet, blue, white, cream, yellow, orange, or red; this depends on their precise gas/metal content, with more gaseous stars being bluer. Ironically, however, the bluer stars are hotter than the redder stars, which can be confusing to people who associate red with hot and blue with cold!
