Pluto not fitting definition
As I have said before, Pluto can remain on the current planetary list for ordinary consideration and would probably be reclassified as a non-planet to suit the efficacy of an astronomical definition. The guy/gal on the street need not bother about the scientific classification of Pluto...it's still a part of our astronomical heritage and rightly so. I ran into this article from UNIVERSE TODAY by Fraser Cain "Why Pluto is No Longer a Planet" .
