The imagined view from “planet nine” back toward the sun. Astronomers think the huge, distant planet is likely gaseous, similar to Uranus and Neptune.
This may be part of the small disclosure for planet Niburu, Planet X, Sphere Being Entity of Corey Goode Fame, maybe an Andromeda Biosphere as described by Tolec? Not sure, but main stream media and main stream scientists are now reporting that they may have found another planet in our solar system and it is cloaked! Really exciting in my opinion.
The astronomer whose work helped kick Pluto out of the pantheon of planets says he has good reason to believe there’s an undiscovered planet bigger than Earth lurking in the distant reaches of our solar system.
That’s quite a claim, because Mike Brown of Caltech is no stranger to this part of our cosmic neighborhood. After all, he discovered Eris, an icy world more massive than Pluto that proved our old friend wasn’t special enough to be considered a full-fledged planet. He also introduced the world to Sedna, a first-of-its-kind dwarf planet that’s so far out there, its region of space was long thought to be an empty no man’s land.
Now Brown has teamed up with Caltech colleague Konstantin Batygin to do a new analysis of oddities in the orbits of small, icy bodies out beyond Neptune. In their report published Wednesday in The Astronomical Journal, the researchers say it looks like the orbits are all being affected by the presence of an unseen planet that’s about 10 times more massive than Earth — the size astronomers refer to as a super-Earth.
“I’m willing to take bets on anyone who’s not a believer,” says Brown. He thinks existing telescopes have a shot at spotting this mystery planet in just a few years, since this new study points to a band of sky where astronomers should look.
Planet Nine Wields Huge Influence
The six most distant known objects in the solar system with orbits exclusively beyond Neptune (magenta) all mysteriously line up in a single direction. Moreover, when viewed in 3-D, the orbits of all these icy little objects are tilted in the same direction, away from the plane of the solar system. “The only way to get these objects to line up in one direction, says Caltech astronomer Mike Brown, “is to have a massive planet lined up in the other direction.” Many scientists are now searching the skies with powerful telescopes, hoping for a faint glimpse of “Planet Nine.”
The first suggestion that something big might be affecting the orbits of distant, icy bodies came in 2014. An international team of astronomers announced that they’d discovered a new dwarf planet, nicknamed Biden, that stays even farther out than Sedna. They also noted a strange clustering in the orbits of these objects, and in the orbits of about a dozen others. Perhaps, they hypothesized, the gravity of some unseen planet was acting as a shepherd.
“They were pointing out that there was something funny going on in the outer solar system, but nobody could really understand what it was,” says Brown. “Ever since they pointed it out we’ve been scratching our heads.”
The idea of a huge, hidden planet seemed kind of crazy. “No one really took it very seriously,” says Brown. “It was ignored more than you might guess.”
But he walked a few doors down to meet with Batygin and suggested they take this on. As they studied the freaky way that these objects lined up in space, Brown says, they realized that “the only way to get these objects to line up in one direction is to have a massive planet lined up in the other direction.”
