This table concerns those nine* Solar System bodies that until recently had all been labelled as planets: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto.

An ever growing list of planets around other stars can be found in The Extra-Solar Planets Catalog or California & Carnegie Planet Search.

Other classes of objects not considered major planets are found in the Asteroid belt, Kuiper belt, and Oort cloud.

  • 0 This is officially classed as a dwarf planet.
  • 1 Soon after its discovery in 1930, Pluto was classified a planet by the International Astronomical Union. However, based on additional discoveries since that time, some astronomers suggested Pluto that should be classified as a Kuiper belt object. In 2006, Pluto was reclassified as a dwarf planet.
  • 2 In the 19th century, it was revealed that there were two moons that orbited Mars. There were reports of observations of this planet, and the moons were named "Phobos" and "Deimos".
  • 3 Many cultures and civilizations grouped the Sun and the Moon together with Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn, as a class of celestial objects, commonly called "planets" in English.
  • 4 Eris and Chiron are considered planets by some astrologers.
  • 5 Soon after its discovery, Eris was hailed as the 10th planet of the Solar System by many groups, including the media and popular press, as Eris is larger and heavier than Pluto.
  • 6 Chiron, a minor planet between Saturn and Uranus, must be distinguished from Charon, which is a moon of Pluto.
  • 7 In the late 18th and early 19th centuries, many asteroids were considered planets. Among these, principally this applied to Pallas, Juno and Vesta, along with the now dwarf planet status Ceres.
