Searching for 'Planet X,' scientists discover distant object billions of miles beyond Pluto

Planet X foundAt the very edge of our solar system, scientists have discovered a new, extremely distant object billions of miles beyond Pluto.

Even more interesting: The object has an orbit that hints of an even-farther-out “Super-Earth” or larger “Planet X” which could be lurking out there.

The findings were announced Tuesday by the International Astronomical Union's Minor Planet Center.

The object was discovered as part of astronomy’s ongoing hunt for unknown dwarf planets and Planet X, aka "Planet Nine," an as yet undiscovered world that could have a mass about 10 times that of Earth.

According to NASA, "the existence of this distant world is only theoretical at this point and no direct observation of the object nicknamed have been made."
