… that today is Pluto Reclassification Day? The planet Pluto was reclassified as a “dwarf planet” by the International Astronomical Union. Pluto’s status was changed due to the IAU’s new rules for an object qualifying as a planet. Pluto met two of the three rules because it orbits the sun and is large enough to assume a nearly round shape. However, since Pluto has an oblong orbit and overlaps the orbit of Neptune it disqualified Pluto as a planet.
