Dwarf planets
Just mini planets? Not really 

   Dwarf planets aren't just miniscule planets as a matter of fact Dwarf planets are technically celestial bodies that represent the same shape or form of a miniature planet. A few facts are that dwarf planets usually have an irregular orbit, no matter the circumstances always orbit around  sun or large star, has enough for self propulsion gravity, can be either a gas or a rock planet. Also, Dwarf planets can be found in a multitude of other galaxies as well as our galaxy. 
        Unfortunately, there are only 5 dwarf planet have been  located in our solar system which are known as Pluto, Ceres, Haumea, Makemake, and Eris. Scientists also believe that there may be hundreds more dwarf planets not just in our galaxy but in other galaxies too Although, Pluto and Ceres are now known as dwarf planets and have been since 2006 . Previously, Ceres was considered an asteroid and Pluto happened to be the ninth planet in our solar system. 
       Pluto happened to be stumbled upon Clyde W. Tombaugh on February 18, 1930 not just because Pluto is the largest of the five dwarf planets is our solar system, however Pluto happened to be located in visibility with our star gazers. Pluto has an approximate mass of ten to the twenty-forth power and circumference of about 7,445 kilometers. As well as, the circumference Pluto has an orbital distance of roughly 5,874, 000,000 kilometers and takes nearly 246 years on Earth to revolve around the sun once. Additionally, the dwarf planet has ferociously freezing and harsh temperatures of the proximate -299 degrees Celsius. In conjunction, Pluto has five moons which are known as Charon, Hydra, Kerberos, Nixs, and finally Styx. A fascinating fact concerning Pluto is that Pluto is approximately 33.33 repeating percent water which is three times more than earth's oceans conjoined.
       Ceres happened to be founded on January 1, 1801 by Giuseppe Piazzi. Ceres has a diameter of approximately 950 kilometers with a mass that is roughly equivalent to 8.96 multiplied by ten to the twentieth power. Another fact, about Ceres revolve around the sun once every 1,680 days which is equivalent to nearly 4.6 Earth years. Even furthermore, Ceres' orbital distance is approximately 413,700,000 kilometers. Also, Ceres has a burning temperature for a dwarf planet of 105 degrees Celsius due to the fact that Ceres is the closest dwarf planet to the sun.Ceres must be on a serious diet because Ceres loses  kilograms per second due warm temperatures from the sun.
            Haumea has an irregular oblong shape allowing Haumea to be least spherical of the five dwarf planets. Also, Haumea has an equatorial diameter of 1,960 to 1,518 kilometers along with a polar diameter of  roughly 996 kilometers. Haumea happened to be discovered by Mike Brown, José Luis Ortiz, and their team on December 28th, 2004. Another, important characteristic concerning Haumea happens to be that the mass is 4.01 times ten to the twenty first power. Additionally, for Humea to go around the sun once is equal to about 283.3 earth years due to the enormous orbital distance of  approximately 6,452,000,000 kilometers. However, one would think that the days are treacherously long because of how many earth years Haumea takes up to go around once but the days are actually only 3.9 earth hours. Plus, Haumea has extremely frigid temperatures of -214 degrees Celsius.  Lastly,  Haumea two moons surround Haumea known as Namaka and Hi'iaka. 
            Makemake happened to be discovered by Micheal E. Brown, Chad Trujillo, and David Rabinowitz on March 31, 2005. Makemake  has an equatorial diameter of 1.434 kilometers along with a polar diameters of 1,422 kilometers. Also, Makemake has a mass of about five times the ten to the twenty first power. Another exquisite fact about Makemake is the orbital distance of approximately 6,850,000,000 kilometers and takes 309.9 Earth years to orbit around the sun. Something extremely fascinating about Makemake happened to be made a dwarf planet by the International Astronomical Union ( IAU ).  
       Eris, once considered the tenth planet, is know known as the first dwarf planet. Eris happened to be founded by M.E. Brown, C.A. Trujillo and D.L. Robinowitz. Also, Eris has an orbital distance of approximately 10,120,000,000 kilometers. Eris takes nearly 560 Earth years to orbit around the sun once. Also, Eris has a mass of 1.6 times ten to the twenty second power. Another, interesting fact about Eris is the diameter of roughly 2,326 kilometers. Additionally, one moon by the name of Dysnomia surrounds Eris. Lastly, Eris possesses an icy temperature of nearly -231 degrees Celsius.
All in all, these key reasons prove that these dwarf planets aren't just mini planets, however the are considered to be dwarf planets due to their irregular orbits, size, shapes, and moons
