Distant object pointed to ninth planet of the Solar system

Scientists Say New 'Planet 9' Evidence May Solve the Greatest Mystery in Our Solar System

The object is called 2015 BP519 has an orbit around the Sun that is 35 to 862 times the radius of Earth's orbit around the Sun. Observations of the orbit of the object showed that it was strongly inclined to the axis of the Solar system.

The researchers required performing digital simulations of our solar system for understanding as to how the discovered object happened to possess such freakish orbit. They have actually discovered a Trans Neptunian item whose orbit might be substantially impacted by the presence of a ninth planet.

There has been mounting evidence of the existence of Planet Nine for some time now.

The group from the Dark Energy Study state that 2015 BP519 is the most severe Trans-Neptunian Things discovered to this day in the paper. So, in order to reach their unexpected conclusion, the team used some computer simulation of the solar system.

That invisible surface is the solar system's "plane", and compared to it, 2015 BP519's orbit is heavily skewed.

BSF man killed, six injured in cross-border firing in J&K
The firing began when Pakistan started small arms and mortar fire from Thursday midnight, to which the BSF retaliated accordingly. Besides this, a BSF jawan posted in the border outpost at Pittal in Arnia sector was injured in the firing around 6:45 am.

Professor David Gerdes said, "It's not proof that Planet Nine exists".

After that, the team added certain properties of a possible ninth planet which some researchers from Caltech theorized about in 2015.

Back in 2016, a pair of planetary scientists announced that they believed a ghost planet, dubbed Planet Nine, was orbiting somewhere well beyond Pluto in our own solar system. Most theorized that it could be a super-sized Earth-like planet. Guess what? The object's orbit matched nearly exactly. Astrophysicist Konstantin Batygin from Caltech said that there are now five different lines of observational evidence that point to the existence of a ninth planet.

The scientists say that the orbit of this potential dwarf planet is so odd it is thought to have been affected by Planet Nine.

The possibility for this mysterious planet hinges on the movements of other objects further than Neptune. That small population of objects loops outward toward the same quadrant of the solar system, something unlikely to happen by chance according to the astronomers. Now, a new study, which the arXiv physics reprint server recently published, claims that planet nine might be to blame for the unusual orbit of a Trans Neptunian space object.
