English: Pluto's orbital period is 248 Earth years. Its orbital characteristics are substantially different from those of the planets, which follow nearly circular orbits around the Sun close to a flat reference plane called the ecliptic. In contrast, Pluto's orbit is highly inclined relative to the ecliptic (over 17°) and highly eccentric (elliptical). =
Česky: Oběžná doba Pluta činí přibližně 248 pozemských let. Charakteristiky jeho oběžné dráhy jsou významně odlišné od charakteristik oběžných drah planet, které obíhají po téměř kruhových dráhách v ploché rovině nazývané ekliptika. Na rozdíl od nich je oběžná dráha Pluta vůči ekliptice velmi nakloněná (více než 17°) a velmi výstřední (eliptická).
