How many planets are there in our solar system?

If you answered 9, you are no longer correct. Apparently, there are now at least 12. There are the 8 classical planets, from which list Pluto has been removed, and a category called Plutons, which includes Pluto, Charon, Ceres, and another Kuyper Belt object (as yet unnamed UB313). And a few more may be added to the Plutons in the coming years. Who knew?!
