This "Dwarf Planet" is now known as Eris. Eris and its moon, Dysnomia, lie beyond Pluto in the Kuiper Belt.
Discovered on October 21, 2003 by Brown, Trujillo and Rabinowitz at Mt Palomar and known as 2003 UB313 the provisionally-named Xena appears to be more massive than Pluto. It is part of a newly-proposed class of astronomical objects called Plutons. Xena has a moon informally known as Gabrielle, Xena's friend in the TV series Xena, the Warrior Princess. Gabrielle is also considered a Pluton, though if it really is a moon of Xena, it's hard to see why, based on the proposed definition. Neither have any accepted astrological significance. See Planet.
