Dwarf planet diagram
A dwarf planet is a planetary-mass object that is neither a true planet nor a natural satellite.That is, it is in direct orbit of a star, and is massive enough for its gravity to compress it into a
hydrostatically equilibrious shape (usually a spheroid), but has not cleared the neighborhood of other material around its orbit. The term dwarf planet was adopted in 2006 as part of a three-way Ceres (/ ˈ s ɪər iː z /; minor-planet designation: 1 Ceres) is the largest object in the asteroid belt that lies between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter, slightly closer to Mars's orbit.With a diameter of 945 km (587 mi), Ceres is the largest of the minor planets and the only dwarf planet inside Neptune's orbit.It is the 33rd-largest known body in the Solar System. The term dwarf planet has been tossed around a lot in recent years. As part of a three-way categorization of bodies orbiting the Sun, the term was adopted in 2006 due to the discovery of objects Today is a big day at Backyard Worlds: Planet 9! We're celebrating our 2nd
anniversary, our reboot, and announcing our second paper, published in the Astrophysical Journal letters. (You can read it here for free.) It's about a unique white dwarf that's an analog for … The Planets (plus the Dwarf Planet Pluto). Our solar system
consists of the sun, eight planets, moons, many dwarf planets (or plutoids), an asteroid belt, comets, meteors, and others. This site is linked to Spectra and The Hertzsprung-Russell (HR) Diagram. For a broader continuous story see From the Sun to the Stars. Return to STARS. The purpose of this site is to provide a deep, non-technical review of stars and their natures for the beginner. Main Sequence Stars - The main sequence is the point in a star's evolution during which it maintains a stable nuclear reaction. It is this stage during which a star will spend most of its life. Our Sun is a main sequence star. A main sequence star will
