Best Answer

The total number of planets in the universe is unknown, but there are likely many billions, perhaps many with conditions similar to Earth.

More than 300 planets outside our solar system have been discovered. All are within our own Milky Way galaxy, because accurate observations of planet-sized masses in other galaxies is not currently possible. Theoretical extrapolations suggest that there are indeed planets around many stars in other galaxies as well.

How many planets does the comet galaxy have?

It is not generally known how many planets are in each galaxy; it isn't even known how many planets are in our own galaxy, and will probably never be known exactly, due to its enormous size. However, according to latest observations, it seems likely that every star has several planets, at least on average.

How many dwarf planets are there in the milky way galaxy?

It is not known. Scientists are still not sure how many dwarf planets are in the solar system or how many true planets are in the galaxy. If estimates from our solar system apply elsewhere, however, the number is probably in the trillions.
