What Zodiac Sign Is The Planet Eris Related To?

The dwarf planet Eris has no association with any given zodiac sign. It carries themes of discord, petty jealousy and strife, but has not been studied long enough for precise interpretation.

How long is a year on Pluto?

A year on Pluto (the time it takes to go around the Sun) is equivalent to 247.92 Earth years.

Since its discovery in 1930, Pluto has completed about 1/3 of a complete orbit. This occurs because Pluto is so very far from the sun. In astronomy, the definition of a year is the length of time the Earth takes to revolve about the sun.

Measured in Earth days, 1 Pluto year = 90,490.8 Days

----------

It takes 248 Earth-years for Pluto to orbit the sun because pluto orbits at an average distance of 5.9 billion km from the Sun, while Earth only orbits at 150 million km.

It takes Pluto 248.09 years to orbit the Sun. (This is about 90,613 Earth days, 8 hours.)

248 years. Since its discovery in 1930, Pluto has only completed

a little less than 1/3rd of a complete revolution.

How many dwarf planets are there?

There are currently 5 recognised Dwarf Planets.

  • Ceres - is between Mars and Jupiter in the asteroid belt.
  • Pluto
  • Eris
  • Makemake
  • Haumea

For a list of dwarf planet candidates, see related link.

There are currently five known "dwarf planets", but it is certain that there are many more in the Kuiper Belt that have not yet been identified.

Any body in the Kuiper Belt with enough mass to attain "hydrostatic equilibrium" - meaning that it has enough mass that its gravity crushes it into a sphere - will be another "dwarf planet". There may be dozens or hundreds of them, but they are so small and far away that we haven't noticed them yet.

Wait about 6 more years, until the James Webb Space Telescope is launched. It ought to be able to pick out a few.

NASA's "New Horizons" spacecraft will reach the Kuiper Belt during July 2015 to study Pluto and its moons up close for the first time, and also other objects in the belt.

How far is Eris from the sun?

The dwarf planet Eris is in a highly elliptical orbit (elliptical = oval-shaped) with an perihelion (closest point to the Sun) of 38 AU, and an aphelion (farthest point from the Sun) of 97 AU.

Currently, Eris is near its farthest point from the Sun, about 96.7 AU (9 billion miles or 14 billion kilometers) from the Sun.

And... Eris is about 3x further away from the sun than Pluto.

Where are asteroids located?

Most asteroids are located in the asteroid belt which is just between Mars and Jupiter's orbit. Here, there are thousands of them. Some are also found in Jupiter's orbit, these are called Trojan asteroids. Finally, there are a few near the Earth which are called Apollo asteroids. An asteroid is made up of rock and metal, and are basically remnants of the earliest years of the formation of the solar system (roughly about 4 billion years ago).

How long would it take to get to Eris?

Eris is a large dwarf planet beyond Neptune's orbit. From the launch date it would probably be the best part of 15-30 years, depending on the position of Eris. The New Horizons space probe was launched in January 2006 to investigate Pluto, which is a similar distance (29.7 - 49.3 AU). It should get to Pluto by the middle of 2015, even with an original speed of 36400 mph, and a gravitational boost from Jupiter.

Eris' orbit is fairly eccentric, so at its closest it will be 37.7 AU (earth to sun distances - Astronomical Units). At its furthest it is 97.5AU.

What does the planet Neptune look like?

It is blue because of the methane gasses in the atmosphere.

Bright blue, almost exactly like Uranus. It appears dark blue though a telescope or pictures from satellites because of the way the light is reflected through a lens off of methane.

It also has three very faint white to light blue rings around it, which are almost invisible to the naked eye. Occasionally there are large, black spots on the planet which can exist for a few years before vanishing, these are anticyclonic storms.

What dock lines should you bring when docking in a transient slip while cruising?

You should always assume there will be no lines available when you cruise and carry the same lines you use to cover all weather contingencies at your home port...at a minimum, bow line, stern line, and fore and aft spring lines. Happy cruising.

Where in space is the sun located?

It's impossible to know how thoroughly you want the answer. The sun is at the center of our little solar system, about 30,000 light years from the center of the Milky Way Galaxy. We are in a six galaxy cluster called the local group. But the universe stretches about 14 billion light years from us in all directions. So we can't locate a universe center. There does not seem to be any preferred motion or density in any direction.
