Astronomers have discovered another new object at the edge of our solar system.
Astronomers believe that the orbits of a number of bodies in the distant reaches of the solar system have been disrupted by the pull of an as yet unidentified planet.
The findings have been submitted for publication to the Astronomical Journal.
"These distant objects are like breadcrumbs leading us to Planet X", he continued.
This discovery astronomers have made when looking for the ninth planet in the Solar system that may be in the Oort cloud is a poorly known region, which accumulates a lot of comets.
Extremely distant dwarf planet, which was named the Goblin, was opened as a result of observations, changes the perception of the extreme limits of our Solar system. And this object provides compelling evidence for the existence of Planet X.

The victory takes City up to three points and second in the group behind Lyon, who drew Shakhtar Donetsk and sit on four points. Defending Premier League champions, City are now top of the division having won six and drawn one of their opening seven games.

That's because Google is rolling out a new redesign for Google Assistant that aims to make the interface more user-friendly. Developers and brands now have tools to take full advantage of the phone screen.
It took the team three additional years to nail down The Goblin's orbit, which they did with the aid of observations by the Las Campanas Observatory in Chile and the Discovery Channel Telescope in Arizona.
The weird orbits of those worlds are consistent with the hypothesis that a distant planet larger than Earth, known as Planet Nine or Planet X, is exerting its gravitational influence. "For some 99% of its 40,000-year orbit, it would be too faint to see, even with today's largest telescopes". They found significant shepherding akin to that inferred for other distant objects - and determined that 2015 TG387's orbit remains stable for the age of the solar system nonetheless.
This distant object, along with a couple others previously found by Sheppard and his colleagues, has a fairly unusual path which is thought to be created when a smaller object interacts with a larger one in the past. "They can be used as probes to understand what is happening at the edge of our solar system".
The new research, led by the Carnegie Institution for Science, is the most extensive research ever conducted for distant solar system objects.
It is "about 300 kilometers in diameter, on the small end of a dwarf planet", according to astronomer Scott Sheppard, of the Carnegie Institution for Science in Washington.
Prof Trujillo, of Northern Arizona University, ran computer simulations for different hypothetical Planet X orbits that explained how 2015 TG387 would actually be shepherded by its gravity. It also reaches perihelion in a part of the sky similar to 2012 VP113, Sedna and other "extremely distant trans-Neptunian objects".
Discovering Planet X would "redefine our knowledge of the solar system's evolution", he added. That's about two and half times as far away from the sun as Pluto.
SCIENTISTS may be closer to discovering the mysterious "Planet X". Then its existence is predicted theoretically and called it Planet X or 2015 TG387. Solar system objects tend to have mostly circular orbits, which means that anything with an extremely elongated orbit has probably been interfered with. "These simulations do not prove that there's another massive planet in our Solar System, but they are further evidence that something big could be out there", Trujillo said in a statement.
