પ્લૂટો પહેલાં સૂર્યમંડળના નવમા ગ્રહ તરીકે ઓળખવામાં આવતો હતો, પણ હવે તેને સૌરમંડળના બીજા સૌથી મોટા વામન ગ્રહ તરીકે વર્ગીકૃત કરવામાં આવે છે. તેની સૂર્યની આસપાસ પરીભ્રમણ કક્ષા એટલી લંબગોળ છે જેને કારણે તે નૅપ્ચ્યુન ગ્રહની કક્ષા ની અંદર પ્રવેશ કરે છે. પ્લૂટો સૂર્યથી ખૂબ દૂર હોવાને કારણે તે આખો બરફથી ઢંકાયેલો છે અને અંધાર્યો છે.

  1. This photograph was taken by the Ralph telescope aboard New Horizons on July 14, 2015 from a distance of 35,445 km (22,025 mi). The most prominent feature in the image, the bright, youthful plains of Tombaugh Regio and Sputnik Planitia, can be seen at right. It contrasts the darker, more cratered terrain of Cthulhu Macula at lower left. Because of Pluto's 119.591° tilt at its axis, the southern hemisphere is barely visible in this image; the equator runs through Cthulhu Macula and the southern parts of Sputnik Planitia.
  2. The mean elements here are from the Theory of the Outer Planets (TOP2013) solution by the Institut de mécanique céleste et de calcul des éphémérides (IMCCE). They refer to the standard equinox J2000, the barycenter of the Solar System, and the epoch J2000.
  3. Surface area derived from the radius r:  .
  4. Volume v derived from the radius r:  .
  5. Surface gravity derived from the mass M, the gravitational constant G and the radius r:  .
  6. Escape velocity derived from the mass M, the gravitational constant G and the radius r:  .
  7. Based on geometry of minimum and maximum distance from Earth and Pluto radius in the factsheet
