Pink dwarf. Beyond Pluto discovered the new planet


Scientists in search of the ninth planet found the farthest object of the Solar system from observable. The American astronomers opened the farthest celestial body from all ever observed in the Solar system. Object 2018 VG18 got the nickname Farout (Far) and is located three times further, than Pluto. It needs about one thousand years to make one abortion around the Sun. The correspondent.net tells details. On the way to the Planet the X Group of astronomers from the USA working with the telescope on the Hawaiian volcano of Mauna Kea reported about opening of the farthest celestial body from all ever observed in the Solar system. Object 2018 VG18 is at distance of 120 astronomical units from the Sun. One and. e. it is equal to distance from Earth to the Sun and makes 149.5 million kilometers. Orbit 2018 VG18 Farout the New trans-Neptunian object was found Scott Sheppard from Carnegie Institution, David Tolen from the University of Hawaii and Chad Trujillo from the university of Arizona which are engaged in search of objects, remote from the center of the Solar system. Among the purposes mysterious Planets of X - the ninth planet of the Solar system predicted by astronomers Michael Brown and Konstantin Batygin on the basis of seven earlier known trans-Neptunian objects given about orbits. In 2015 after astronomers found similar anomalies in orbits of several trans-Neptunian objects at once, the assumption was made that they are caused by gravitational influence of an unknown large celestial body. Calculations showed that the mass of an object has to exceed the mass of Earth ten times and be at distance from 200 to 600-1200 astronomical units. Scientists consider that it makes one revolution around the Sun for 15 thousand years, and partly therefore it still did not get in lenses of telescopes. During the search scientists opened the previous champion on remoteness from the Sun - object 2015 TG387. It was found on the eve of Halloween, and primary designation of an object contained the letters TG therefore the dwarf planet The Goblin nicknamed. In detail about it in material the Way to the Planet of X. The goblin on the edge of the Solar system. Let's note that parameters of an orbit of the Goblin do not contradict the theory about the ninth planet which is put forward by Brown and Batygin. Now scientists found a new object which is further away from Earth now, than Goblin. The first pictures were made 2018 VG18 years on November 10 on the eight-meter Japanese Subaru telescope located at Mount Mauna Kea top in Hawaii. Observations in Magellan's telescope confirmed that the distance to 2018 VG18 makes about 120 astronomical units that made it the first object of the Solar system watched limits of a mark of 100 astronomical units. 2018 VG18 Farout - most the planet of the Solar system "Everything that we know about 2018 VG18 so far is far, is its huge distance from the Sun, the approximate diameter and color. As it it is so far, he addresses around a star very slowly: one turn takes about one thousand years", - David Tolen, the astronomer from Hawaiian explained
