Michigan Researchers Find New Dwarf Planet
Now, normally Banana Don would be the person writing about a new planet discovery. However, my friend, Banana Don has informed that this planet is "too small" for him to worry/care about and that he considers it (based on its dwarf size) only an asteroid.
So, it was up to me to let you know that researches at the University of Michigan have discovered a dwarf planet that is only around 330 miles across. According to Astronomy.com, the dwarf planet is the third farthest known object in the solar system and is in an area of the Kuiper Belt detached from the gravitational influence of Neptune. For those who would like to know more about the dwarf planet (unlike Banana Don), you can click here for more info.
