Why are Ceres Pluto Charon and 2003'UB313 dwarf planets?
Ceres, Eris (formerly UB313) and Pluto are dwarf planets. Charon is Pluto's largest moon. The change in planetary classification was made in August, 2006 by the International Astronomical Union (IAU), and the dwarf planets are defined as non-satellite Sun-orbiting bodies that do not "clear out their (planetary) neighborhood" as major planets do. As of January, 2009, the five dwarf planets include these 3 plus 2 more Kuiper Belt Objects, Haumea and Makemake.
