All 8 planets (exluding Dwarfs) in order.

Our Solar System consists of 8 planets, and including Dwarf Planets would make 14 planets.

Early AstronomyEdit

Five planets (Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn) have been visible in the night sky, and were identified early in Earth's human history. Since Uranus isn't visible in a clear night sky, it was not discovered until 1781.
