The Hubble Space Telescope (HST) has spotted the largest object in the solar system since Pluto was discovered in 1930. Though officially named 2002 LM60, the science team that found it are calling it Quaoar, after the creation force of the Tongva tribe of the Los Angeles basin. The new body is 1/10 the size of the Earth and about 1/2 the size of Pluto.

This has stirred up the debate as to whether or not Pluto is a planet or simply one of many Kuiper Belt Objects (KBO) on the outskirts of our solar system.
