Evidence found of Lurking Planet : Planet Nine
Astronaut found Planet Nine. No not the Pluto!
US scientist announced on 20th January, 2016 that a previously unknown giant planet may have been discovered lurking in the outer reaches of our solar system.
The planet Nine was described by two California Institute of Technology. And it hasn’t been spotted yet. They have found it by watching the way that dwarf planets and other objects in the outer solar system move — their orbits seem to be disturbed by something huge but hidden sitting out there. They base their findings on mathematical and computer modelling, and anticipate its discovery via telescope within five years or less.

Astronomer Mike Brown told The Associated Press about this planet:
We could have stayed quiet and quietly spent the next five years searching the skies ourselves and hoping to find it. But I would rather somebody find it sooner, than me find it later,
The report was published in the Astronomical Journal. In The Astronomical Journal , Professors Brown and Batygin lay out a detailed circumstantial argument for the planet’s existence. The planet has a mass about 10 times that of Earth. This planet would take between 10,000 and 20,000 years to make just one full orbit around the Sun. It is surrounded by the too much light.
The astronauts assumed that planet has about 5,000 times the mass of Pluto, and its gravity has affected the motion of dwarf planets in the outer solar system, essentially perturbing celestial bodies in the field of icy objects and debris beyond Neptune known as the Kuiper Belt.
If the planet is relatively closer to earth in its swing around the sun. It’s an estimated 20 billion to 100 billion miles from us.
