Named for the Greek goddess of discord
Discovered in 2005
You're heavier than Pluto (but a little smaller in size!) 10th planet from the Sun
Your moon is Dysnomia
Your name is Eris
(Number 2 dwarf in size, first in mass so it's really alright) Beyond the Kuiper Belt
Where the Sun's barely felt
Your name is Eris
(You have a super-cold surface, -231 degrees Celsius) Eris your orbit's long
560 years to go around
When you get closer to the Sun
Your frozen atmosphere begins to thaw The place where you live
Is called the Scattered Disk
Your name is Eris
(Yeah, you make your home where the icy minor planets roam) You're smaller than Earth's moon
You're called a Trans-Neptunian OBJECT!
(Or a TNO, with an orbit that's farther than Neptune's, yo!) Scientists think that you're made of rock
You're hanging out in the most distant spot
All the asteroids in the Kuiper Belt
Could fit inside your dwarf planet self
You're super-cold all night and day
Because you're 8 billion miles away from the Sun
Yeah Eris, you're the one
And it's been fun Copyright 2017 Silly School Songs. All rights reserved. Image Credits: Google Images

The category of dwarf planets was created in 2006 by the International Astronomical Union to help contain new objects that were being discovered. Although there are hundreds of objects in the solar system that could potentially be classified as dwarf planets, as of 2017 there are only five officially recognized ones: Ceres, Pluto, Eris, Haumea, and Makemake. Unlike planets, dwarf planets have not cleared their orbits of objects and debris. Like this video if you want to see more videos about SPACE!

My name is Eris
I am a Dwarf Planet
The furthest dwarf from the sun
the humans found yet On January 5th in 2005
The Caltech observatory had brought me to life A team led by Astronomer Michael Brown
The biggest Dwarf in Mass is what they found They believe my surface is covered in Nitrogen Ice
But you’d have to visit me to make sure that’s precise In 2006 the IAU named me
And gave me dwarf status yeah officially My name is Eris
I am a Dwarf Planet
The furthest dwarf from the sun
the humans found yet Minus 390 is my average degree
If you made it to my surface then you’d probably freeze Dysnomia my one natural satellite see
It means lawlessness and it is always orbiting me I'm 27% more massive than your Pluto
yet Pluto is slightly larger than I am you know I take 557 Earth years to orbit the sun
When I orbit I leave the Kuiper belt on my run My name is Eris
I am a Dwarf Planet
The furthest dwarf from the sun
the humans found yet

Dwarf Planets - Pluto, Eris, other bodies beyond Neptune
Looks at the New Horizons mission to Pluto, due to arrive in 2015, and describes other Dwarf planets of the outer Solar System.
Eris (dwarf planet)
Eris (minor-planet designation 136199 Eris) is the most massive known dwarf planet in the Solar System and the ninth most massive body known to directly orbit the Sun. It is estimated to be 2,326 (±12) km in diameter, and 27% more massive than Pluto, or about 0.27% of the Earth's mass.
Eris was discovered in January 2005 by a Palomar Observatory-based team led by Mike Brown, and its identity was verified later that year. It is a trans-Neptunian object (TNO) and a member of a high-eccentricity population known as the scattered disc. It has one known moon, Dysnomia. As of 2014, its distance from the Sun is 96.4 AU, roughly three times that of Pluto. With the exception of some comets, Eris and Dysnomia are currently the most distant known natural objects in the Solar System. This video is targeted to blind users. Attribution:

Dwarf Planet Eris Commercial
I had to do a science project on the planets with my homies. Our planet was Eris. One of the requirements for the project was a commercial promoting people to come to the planet. This is what we came up with.
Eris Discovered to be Same Size as Pluto: Eris and Pluto are Twin Planets
Eris Discovered to be Same Size as Pluto: Eris and Pluto are Twin Planets This ESOcast describes how astronomers have accurately measured the diameter of the faraway dwarf planet Eris for the first time by catching it as it passed in front of a faint star. This event was seen at the end of 2010 by telescopes in Chile, including the TRAPPIST telescope at ESO's La Silla Observatory. The observations show that Eris is an almost perfect twin of Pluto in size. Eris seems to have a very reflective surface, suggesting that it is covered in ice, probably a frozen atmosphere. Eris is a plutoid, that is, a trans-Neptunian dwarf planet. Its orbital characteristics more specifically categorize it a scattered-disk object (SDO), or a TNO that is believed to have been "scattered" from the Kuiper belt into more distant and unusual orbits following gravitational interactions with Neptune as the Solar System was forming. Although its high orbital inclination is unusual among the known SDOs, theoretical models suggest that objects that were originally near the inner edge of the Kuiper belt were scattered into orbits with higher inclinations than objects from the outer belt. Inner-belt objects are expected to be generally more massive than outer-belt objects, and so astronomers expect to discover more large objects like Eris in high-inclination orbits, which have traditionally been neglected. Because Eris may be larger than Pluto, it was initially described as the "tenth planet" by NASA and in media reports of its discovery. In response to the uncertainty over its status, and because of ongoing debate over whether Pluto should be classified as a planet, the IAU delegated a group of astronomers to develop a sufficiently precise definition of the term planet to decide the issue. This was announced as the IAU's Definition of a Planet in the Solar System, adopted on August 24, 2006. At this time, both Eris and Pluto were classified as dwarf planets, a category distinct from the new definition of planet. Brown has since stated his approval of this classification. The IAU subsequently added Eris to its Minor Planet Catalogue, designating it (136199) Eris. From Wikipedia: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eris_(dwarf_planet)

Space Video: Faraway Eris is Pluto's Twin in Space
This video describes how astronomers have accurately measured the diameter of the faraway dwarf planet Eris for the first time by catching it as it passed in front of a faint star, which is called an occultation. This event was seen at the end of 2010 by telescopes in Chile, including the TRAPPIST telescope at ESO's La Silla Observatory. The observations show that Eris is an almost perfect twin of Pluto in size. Eris seems to have a very reflective surface, suggesting that it is covered in ice, probably a frozen atmosphere. During this occultation the brightness of the star suddenly drops, and will then suddenly reappear. This allows for size and diameter of the object in the foreground. If the mass is known, they can also determine its density. Occultations of stars are hard to spot, but it is of the only ways to tell about far off objects, which only appear as specks of light to the most powerful telescopes. This is how we have learned about Eris, the dwarf planet, which was first found as a large object in 2005. Its discovery is one of the reasons that we have the new classification of dwarf planets, which lead to the reclassification of the Pluto from a planet to a dwarf plant. Eris was once believed to be 1.25 times the size of Pluto, but the new observations show that Eris is almost identical to Pluto. Eris also has a moon, and its orbit of Eris has helped determine the mass of Eris. Knowing the diameter and mass of Eris has allowed scientist to calculate its mass, which is thicker than scientist once thought. It has a rocky body covered by a mantel of ice. It reflects almost all light that comes to it. It probably has a partially frozen atmosphere. Other videos: Hubble Explores black Holes;

Dwarf Planet Crossing at the Solar System's Edge
From ESOCast. Astronomers have accurately measured the size of the remote dwarf planet Eris for the first time. They caught it as it passed in front of a faint star. Eris also seems to be extremely reflective, probably because it is covered in a thin layer of frozen atmosphere.
Occultations are rather like eclipses —the background star disappears behind the object and reappears on its other side. As viewed from Earth, the brightness of the background star suddenly drops and then returns equally suddenly to its previous level. By looking at these two events, astronomers can measure the size and shape of the occulting foreground object. If they also know the mass of this object they can then determine its density. The occultation technique has now enabled astronomers to learn a lot more about the dwarf planet Eris. Eris was identified as a large object in the outer Solar System in 2005. Its discovery was one of the factors that led to the creation of a new class of objects called dwarf planets and the reclassification of Pluto from planet to dwarf planet in 2006. Eris is three times farther from the Sun than Pluto at the moment, and until now was believed to be about 25% bigger. But the new observations show that Eris is in fact almost exactly the same size as Pluto, with a diameter of around 2330 kilometres. Because Eris also has a moon, called Dysnomia, astronomers have also been able to calculate the mass of Eris by a careful study of this moon's orbit. Using the new diameter and known mass, they then calculated the density of the Eris, which now appears to be greater than astronomers had previously thought. Eris seems to be a rocky body surrounded by a thick mantle of ice. The dwarf planet turns out to reflect almost all of the light that falls on it — its surface is even brighter than fresh snow on Earth. Eris is probably covered in a very thin layer of frozen atmosphere that is likely to consist of frozen nitrogen mixed with methane. It is probably the result of the freezing of Eris's atmosphere as the dwarf planet's elongated orbit takes it far away from the Sun.
These important new observations, made with relatively small telescopes, have allowed astronomers to measure Eris's properties better than ever before. This is another step towards understanding the mysterious objects that lie in the remote parts of our own Solar System.
ESOcast 38: Faraway Eris is Pluto's Twin [720p]
Astronomers have accurately measured the diameter of the faraway dwarf planet Eris for the first time by catching it as it passed in front of a faint star. This event was seen at the end of 2010 by telescopes in Chile, including the Belgian TRAPPIST telescope at ESO's La Silla Observatory. The observations show that Eris is an almost perfect twin of Pluto in size. Eris appears to have a very reflective surface, suggesting that it is uniformly covered in a thin layer of ice, probably a frozen atmosphere. The results will be published in the 27 October 2011 issue of the journal Nature. In November 2010, the distant dwarf planet Eris passed in front of a faint background star, an event called an occultation. These occurrences are very rare and difficult to observe as the dwarf planet is very distant and small. The next such event involving Eris will not happen until 2013. Occultations provide the most accurate, and often the only, way to measure the shape and size of a distant Solar System body. credit: ESO; music: John Dyson (from the album Moonwind) and movetwo. source: http://www.eso.org/public/videos/eso1142a/
