Scientists released a map of the solar system - Pluto's position changed

One question always comes to our mind is how big our solar system looks like, so today you will see a map of our solar system.This map showed the orbits of more than 18000 asteroids in the solar system.

This includes everything we find to be more than 10 km in diameter - about 10,000 asteroids - as well as 8000 random objects of unknown size. This map shows each asteroid on New Year's Eve 19

One final fun fact about this map you can see in this is that Pluto is shown inside the orbit of Neptoon. It turns out that about 10% of the time Pluto actually does more of the sun than Neptune.

But here in this map Pluto is appearing closer as Neptune's orbit tail reaches back to a point in time when it was closer to the Sun. But now Neptune is away from the sun
