FROM WIKIPEDIA: The definition of planet set in Prague in 2006 by the International Astronomical Union (IAU) states that, in the Solar System, a planet is a celestial body which:
1.is in orbit around the Sun,
2.has sufficient mass to assume hydrostatic equilibrium (a nearly round shape), and
3.has “cleared the neighbourhood” around its orbit.
…and one more defining act is that it has a moon…
When Pluto was “down graded” out of the “planet” biz, I snickered and thought, “will always be a planet to me.”
All I have to say about payback is that she is a mother f***er.
Many thanks to Wikipedia for the definition and obviously the photo is not mine. Cuddo’s and a job well done to whomever it belongs!
