What are inner planets? The inner planets are the planets closest to the sun. Here are the names of the inner planets Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars.

Outer Planets

Outer planets are the group of planets that are furthest away from the sun. there names are Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune.

Dwarf Planets

Dwarf planets are round and orbit the sun just like the eight major planets. But unlike planets, dwarf planets are not able to clear their orbit path. So there are no similar objects at roughly the same distance from the sun. A dwarf planet is much smaller than a planet, but is not a moon. Pluto is the most known dwarf planet. There is also Ceres, Charon, Harumea, Makemake, and Eris.
