Precipitation of a product of a bromination. 
Even through this solution is blue as a copper(II)-amine complex, but it’s only an impurity, what formed as a byproduct of a bromination.
The compound is dissolved in methanol and slowly water is added from an addition funnel. This will cause the precipitation of the product what is a white powder and will keep this blue thing in the solution, so they could be easily separated.

Planets of Our Solar System

Our solar system officially has eight planets and one star: the Sun. The discovery of an object larger than Pluto in 2005 rekindled the debate over whether such objects, belonging to the Kuiper Belt – a collection of icy bodies located beyond Neptune – should be called planets. Pluto and other large members of the Kuiper Belt are now considered “dwarf planets.”
