Dwarf planets comparison

Ceres, Pluto, and Eris are compared to Earth, Moon, and Mars.

A dwarf planet is a celestial body orbiting a star that is massive enough to be rounded by its own gravity but has not cleared its neighboring region of planetismals and is not a satellite. More explicitly, it has to have sufficient mass to overcome its compressive strength and achieve hydrostatic equilibrium.[1]
