Alright, having researched a bit more, it's premature to call it the 10th planet. I'm not sure if there really is a working definition of a "planet," but hell, it's bigger than Pluto.

PS. this is my first thread in MilAv/Space, so I don't know if it's appropriate. If not, either move it to Non-Av or delete it. No problem with either.
