“My first guess is that it'll be kind of like Neptune, but I don't know what it's going to look like.”
- Michael Brown, Ph.D., Prof. of Planetary Astronomy, Caltech
January 27, 2017 Pasadena, California - One year ago on January 29, 2016, I reported at my news website, Earthfiles.com, and my Coast to Coast AM radio broadcast, about a newly discovered ninth planet at the edges of our solar system. Michael Brown, Ph.D., Professor of Planetary Astronomy at Caltech in Pasadena, reported that a huge object ten to twenty times the mass of Earth was moving in a big looping orbit far beyond Pluto in the region between the Kuiper Belt and the Oort Cloud. Prof. Brown simply calls it “Planet 9.” The discovery has been like chasing a ghost. Whatever is out there, its mass is so great that its gravitational field pushes half a dozen other Kuiper Belt objects to cluster together on the opposite side of Planet 9's huge looping orbit.
