I think it might be related to Planet 9

and for my opinion its one more reason why we needed dawrf planets class.
imagine every system we will discover will have like 20 planets...
anyway, great discovery! do we know the orbit yet? orbits may lead us to planet 9 location

JackDole, we still dont know the exact diameter. its 420km if the albedo of the object is 0.4
but 1000km if its 0.05.
i guess you choosed the 0.4 biggrin
ohh and found an orbit map if someone interested:

steeljaw354,
sorry, I had in the script 'DwarfMoon' instead of 'DwarfPlanet', but this should really not make any problems.
But I have corrected it.

spacer, We need to send out a massive wave of probes to explore and image them.
