Hello, Ice Ball: The Solar System’s Newest Distant Member

The Earths Sun can be seen in the distance of this artwork of Eris, a dwarf planet on the outer fringes of our solar system. Eris is about more massive than Pluto and about three times farther away from the Sun.

New dwarf planet in the Oort cloud changes picture of solar system.   Planet X theories revisited? Sedna and 2012 VP-113 seem to be making their closest approach to the sun at similar angles – which could mean that there’s a giant planet out there, tugging at both of their orbits in the same way. This ghost planet could be from 1 to 20 Earth masses, Sheppard said, though it’s still also possible that the dwarf planets were pulled there by the tug from a passing star in the sun’s early…

Hello, Ice Ball: The Solar System’s Newest Distant Member

Astronomers have announced the discovery of an amazing object in our solar system: 2012 an icy body with an orbit so big it never gets closer th .

Astronomers have discovered a new distant dwarf planet, 2012 VP 113, that is the most distant known object in our solar system. It is part of the inner Oort Cloud with its closest point to the Sun in its elliptical orbit being about 80 AU (80 times the Earth-Sun distance - AU = astronomical unit). The object's orbit is perturbed enough to suggest the existence of a further, large planet-sized massive body

UFO Following Apollo 11 Module Across The Moon Surface, -- Here we have a UFO shooting across the moons surface caught by the Apollo 11 mission photos. The craft seems to be cigar shaped with a jet-like contrail behind it. In the original photo, it is in the upper center area. Perhaps this craft was following the Apollo 11 module as it orbited the moon. Photo: http://www.lpi.usra.edu/resources/apollo/images/print/AS11/43/6506.jpg #aliens #ufo #et #ovni

Between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter spins an asteroid belt, and in that asteroid belt is the inner solar system's dwarf planet. Ceres makes up a third of the asteroid belt's mass, and, with a diameter of 950 kilometres (590 miles), it was originally thought to have been a planet on its discovery in 1801.
