    8 according to NASA - Pluto is now a 'dwarf planet' whatever that is supposed to mean - if it isn't a planet then don't put planet in it's type!

    There are 8 planets plus 3 dwarf planets. According to everything I can find you can't count the dwarf ones within the definition of 'planets' hence there are only 8 planets in our solar system. All comes down to the definition of 'planet' basically.

    Officially 8 unofficially there are the 3 stated dwarfs and NASA were arguing over one outside Pluto's orbit.
