Two astronomers have found evidence for the existence of a ninth planet in our solar system. ‘Planet Nine would be two hundred times farther from the Sun than the Earth, and at least ten thousand years about a lap around the sun.

Astronomers have not seen the planet itself, but saw evidence in the orbits around the sun of other celestial bodies, reports New Scientist. The chance that that would be caused by chance, would be negligible.

The previously unknown planet would be five to ten times as large as the Earth, a year that lasts between 10 000 and 20 000 Earth years and go into an elliptical orbit around the sun. The two scientists publish their findings in the Astronomical Journal. One of the two astronomers responsible for finding Eris, an object with the characteristics of Pluto.
