The size comparison of the top 9 known dwarf planets/minor planets in the Solar system!
This is the size comparison of the top 9 largest dwarf planets in the Solarsystem.
★Haumea's size comparison is weird due to it being a spherical-football shaped object. It has equatorial and polar diameters and radiuses.
★I made a mistake with the dwarf planet (minor planet) Gonggong (2007 OR10). The actual diameter is 1,230 km.
