      So far, astronomers have discovered five dwarf planets in our solar system. Pluto, which was once thought of as the ninth planet, is today classified as a dwarf planet. This book looks at the dwarf planets characteristics, size, and orbital patterns, as well as the three rules scientists follow to identify these tiny, round space objects. How to Use the Planet Chart. Using the four buttons at the top, select either Distance from the Sun, Distance from the Earth, Size in the Sky, or Brightness to control how the planets are displayed.; Press the Play button at the bottom of the chart to make time move in fast forward mode.

Byss. Chandrila. Dac (Mon Calamari) Hoth. Coruscant.   The main reason for the planets to vary their distance is due to elliptical orbits. No planet in our Solar System orbits the sun in a perfect circle which means that the distance between planets is never the same. For this reason, to calculate the distance, we use the average to measure how far planets are from one another.
