The outermost planet in our solar system is Neptune. It used to be Pluto but the International Astronomical Union (IAU) redefined the definitions for a planet on August 24, 2006 and hence Pluto is no longer being designated as a planet. Instead it falls into the category of a dwarf planet.

Just as the name dwarf planet suggests, Pluto is relatively small and is only 1/6 of our Moon in terms of mass and 1/3 of the Moon's volume. Pluto mainly consists of rocks and ice just as most planetary object which reside in the Kupier belt. Despite Pluto's small mass, it actually has 5 small satellites, notice that they are called satellites and not moons due to their even smaller masses.

Depending on which definition you ascribe to for what a planet is, it could be Neptune or Eris. I prefer to stick with Pluto because I like Pluto but the technically correct information today says that Neptune is where the solar system ends.

Actually, Pluto lost its designation as a planet in 2006. Neptune is the outermost planet. Pluto is considered to be a member of a collection of objects called the Kuiper belt, and is officially a "dwarf planet"

Most scientists agree with the reclassification of Pluto and its moon Charon as satelites, leaving the gas giant Neptune to claim the title as the outermost planet in our solar system.
