Eris

Today I will be blogging about Eris, a dwarf planet in our solar system.

  1. Eris once was consider the tenth planet in our solar system, before Eris and Pluto were reclassified as dwarf planets.
  2. Eris is named after the Greek goddess of strife and discord.
  3. Eris has one moon, named Dysnomia the Greek goddess of lawlessness, after Eris’s daughter.
  4. Eris is so far away from the sun that sometimes the atmosphere will freeze
  5. Dysnomia takes 16 days to complete a full orbit around the moon.
  6. All of the objects in the asteroid belt could fit in Eris.
  7. Eris takes 557 years to orbit around the sun.
  8.  The temperature on Eris is about -358.6 Fahrenheit degrees and -405.4 degrees farenheit or -217 Degrees Celsius to -243 Degrees Celsius.
  9. Eris’s orbit is and oval like shape so sometimes, Eris is sometimes the farthest planet in the solar system sometimes, but not always. It goes through Pluto’s.
  10. In its atmosphere most likely has methane and nitrogen, most likely it is frozen.
  11. Some people call it Pluto’s twin, they are basically the same size.
  12. Eris is the second largest dwarf planet in the solar system.
  13. Eris was first seen at 2003, we could not figure out what it was. But was considered actual planet a by M.E. Brown C.A. Trujillo & D.L. Rabinowitz in January 5th 2005.

I hope you enjoyed my blog, I do not know which dwarf planet will be next.

  1. I did not know that there was another planet in our solar system that was then downgraded like Pluto to a dwarf planet.
