One of the most popular theories of measuring planetary distances in the solar system is Bode's law, but this law has some deviations when compared to the real distances. In this paper a new classification (Hazaymeh-Hawarey Classification) is presented. This classification aims to explain the inability of Bode's law to identify the two orbital dimensions of Neptune and Pluto, and it provides a new geometric image for the orbital distribution of the solar system, including Neptune and Pluto. This new classification shows that orbits of the solar system are divided into four equal groups, where the (10/3 = 4) is true. It also discovers that the two dimensions of Neptune and Pluto are much more systematic in the solar system, compared to Bode's law. The new classification includes the adjustment of the distances of Sedna and Eris, and enables the mathematical identification of a new asteroid located after Iris, even before the astronomical verification. The new classification reveals the symmetry and the anomaly of the solar system orbits and that the diameters of the first and fourth groups follow a geometric sequence. According to this, the diameter of the new asteroid can be determined.
