Distances of Objects in Our Solar System

This illustration depicts the most distant object yet found in our Solar System, nicknamed “Farfarout,” in the lower right. Along the bottom, various Solar System objects are plotted according to their distance from the Sun, with the planets and closest dwarf planet (Ceres) appearing at the far left and the most distant Solar System objects known, including Farfarout, on the far right. Their distances are provided in astronomical units (au), with 1 au equal to Earth’s average distance from the Sun.
