When examining our solar system, you will find eight planets orbiting the sun. The ones nearer the sun are the rocky planets, while the gas and ice planets are at a further distance. On February 18th, 1930, Pluto was discovered by astronomer Clyde W. Tombaugh. For over 70 years it was considered an official planet, but in 2006 was removed from this list and labeled a dwarf planet instead. The official reason given by The International Astronomical Union is that has not cleared its neighboring region of other objects.”
