What is a Planet? Mars, Pluto, and Exoplanets at Potomac Library

March 11 @ 7:00 pm8:00 pm

All ages.

Dr. Harold Geller, from George Mason University, will be here to discuss definition of a planet. In 2006, the International Astronomical Union (IAU) officially changed the definition of a planet. No longer was Pluto to be a called a planet, but a dwarf planet. We will examine examples of objects inside and outside our solar system; addressing the issues as to whether or not they should be considered an example of a planet.
