I imagine that's fairly small as planets go.

That really puts Pluto's size into perspective. My third graders were upset when astronomers demoted it from planet to dwarf planet; now they've given it another name: a plutoid, a dwarf planet that is farther out in space than the planet Neptune. Your mountain and blue sky background beneath this comment dialogue box always takes my breath away and lifts my spirits! Have a great day, Adam!

I had no idea! I thought it was a lot bigger than that. No wonder they were trying to disqualify it from being a planet.
