Astronomers have spotted what they believe is the most distant object in the solar system — a dwarf planet floating some 9.5 billion miles from the sun.
Dubbed V774104, the object is between 310 miles and 620 miles across — about half Pluto’s size and about three times farther from the sun.
“That’s pretty much all we know about it,” Scott Sheppard told. “We don’t know its orbit yet because we only just discovered it about two weeks ago.”
