For the first time in history, the planet of our solar system was discovered more than 100 times from the Earth to the Sun. And it was the center of the Small Planet of the International Astronomical Union, which brought this discovery into light and called the object scientific name 2018 VG18. However, as always happens in these cases for researchers they called it "Farout" (far away) because of its location so far away.
In the absence of more detailed information, researchers find a spherical object It has a dwarven weight over 498 km in diameter with a pink tone. This color relates to objects that are abundant in ice and because it is very far from the sun, it does not seem to be difficult to believe. In addition, its slow orbital path is specified It can take more than 1000 years to travel around the stars.
The distance between Earth and the Sun is the astronomical unit (AU), which is about 149 million kilometers. "Farout", on the other hand, is located in 120 AU of the sun. Next, the most recently discovered object, Eris, is 96 AUs. This new weight dwarf discovered by Scott S. Sheppard Carnegie Institution for Science, the University of Hawaii's David Tholen and Chad Trujillo Northern Arizona University.
"This discovery is a truly international achievement with the Hawaii and Chile telescopes operating in Japan, as well as with US research institutes and colleges. New wide-field digital cameras in some of the world's largest telescopes, we are finally exploring the edges of our solar system, right over Pluto."
But Farout's orbit is not yet determined and, as Sheppard explained in the second sentence about this historical discovery: "2018 The VG18 is much farther and slower than any other observed solar system, so it will take a few years to fully determine your orbit. But it was found from the same place in the sky to other solar systems in the extreme, suggesting that it may have a similar orbit as most of them. The orbital similarities shown by several well-known small and distant solar cells were the catalyst for our original claim that there is a massive and distant planet in several hundreds of AUs surrounding these smaller objects.
