New Dwarf Planet Discovered

It's way out in the Kuiper Belt, and was discovered by Thurnau and Gerdes' team at the University of Michigan.

2014 UZ224 - no name yet - has a year of 1,100 years. It's pretty tiny - at 330 miles across - but it's big enough to fall in the same category of objects as Pluto. There are probably more of them out there.
