Sedna size. Mounts and kites

This image shows the relationship between the size of our planet, Earth, with the moon, Pluto and the newly discovered planetary bodies, Quaoar and Sedna, although the exact diameter of the latter has not yet been confirmed.

It is suspected that there may be many more bodies that orbit like planets around the Sun, in the Kuiper belt or further away, although the enormous distance and their small size make the detection of these possible planets very difficult.
