— Search Ongoing for 9th Planet, So Massive
It Tilts Solar System 6 Degrees.
“My first guess is that it'll be kind of like Neptune,
but I don't know what it's going to look like.”
- Michael Brown, Ph.D., Prof. of Planetary Astronomy, Caltech

Below -
Our sun is the yellow sphere. Planet orbits are depicted as
gravitationally interacting rings where Orbit 9 depicts the great elliptical
path of what the astronomers think is a gaseous 9th planet in the Oort cloud
that is 10-20 times the mass of our Earth. Why such a huge planet would have such
an elliptical orbit is still unknown. Speculation is that a passing star at
the time the solar system formed might have pulled Planet 9 into the
strange orbit. Graphic by Michael Brown & Konstantin Batygin 2016.

Audio Interview with Michael Brown, PhD, astronomer studying Planet 9

https://www.earthfil...ategory=Science

January 27, 2017 Pasadena, California - One year ago on January 29, 2016, I reported at my news website, Earthfiles.com, and my Coast to Coast AM radio broadcast, about a newly discovered ninth planet at the edges of our solar system. Michael Brown, Ph.D., Professor of Planetary Astronomy at Caltech in Pasadena, reported that a huge object ten to twenty times the mass of Earth was moving in a big looping orbit far beyond Pluto in the region between the Kuiper Belt and the Oort Cloud. Prof. Brown simply calls it “Planet 9.” The discovery has been like chasing a ghost. Whatever is out there, its mass is so great that its gravitational field pushes half a dozen other Kuiper Belt objects to cluster together on the opposite side of Planet 9's huge looping orbit.
