What are the eight planets in our solar system?Firing18 - 9 Answers
What are the 8 planets in the solar system? Well by 8, I am presuming that you mean planets not including the Earth. In such a case, the planets are Mercury, Venus, Mars, Juipter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto.
Though it should be noted that in recent years, there has been large debate whether Pluto is really a planet or not. Due to its size and irregular orbit (it switches place with Neptune part of the time to being furthest planet from the sun, Pluto was downgraded from a planet to a drawf planet in April 2006. Though it ought to be said that while many believe that Pluto shouldn't even be concieved as a drawf planet, many else argue that this was wrong and that Pluto should be re-instated as a planet as it still has certain characteristics of a planet, mainly its own moons.
Hope this answers your question.
The eight planets of our solar system are Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. Pluto was also included before, but on September 13, 2006, International Astronomical Union (IAU) included Pluto in their Minor Planet Catalogue because it failed to fulfill the third condition for an object to be a planet i.e. it crossed the orbit of another planet (Neptune).
