    Yes, I’ve said before I would prefer a definition that included dwarf planets as a subgroup of planets and counting them all, so Neptune would (usually) be the ninth planet, Pluto the tenth, and other officially established dwarf planets would be included in the list of the sun’s planets. At one point it was suggested there could be hundreds of such, but that seems unlikely now, at least for ones we are capable of detecting with current instruments.

    If there had been an option for Neptune and Pluto sharing ninth planet status in the solar system, I probably would have picked that because that would be my preference. But officially, there is currently no established ninth planet.

    It's been pointed out that alien astronomers observing our Solar System might record: Four planets plus debris.

    I think that joke is a bit outdated since Kepler.

    I made that joke and the moderators did not like it.
