Thanks to NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration)
Hi everybody. A quick note to all of you Disneyites out there, not only did we have a Total Solar Eclipse yesterday but here’s another astronomy fact that I think you’ll all be interested in. It has to do with a small planet. Here is a list of them from NASA:
“There are currently five planets classified as dwarf planets: Ceres, Pluto, Makemake, Haumea and Eris. Except for Ceres, which lies in the main asteroid belt, these small planets are located in the Kuiper Belt.”
But there is another planet that NASA didn’t mention and this is an absolute truth that Disneyites everywhere can be proud of.
According to Wkipedia:
“A minor planet discovered in 1989 by astronomer Lyudmila Karachkina, was named Disneya.”
This is yet another connection that the late Walt Disney has with a magical star filled sky.
Celebrate this Day
Because Planet Disneya was discovered on February 21st, from this point forward we we will celebrate February 21st as Disneyite Planet Day!
