New Planets
Sedna at the outer edges
05/24/12

 

In this artist's visualization,the planet-like object dubbed "Sedna" is shown where it resides at the outer edges of the known solar system. The object is so far away that the Sun appears as an extremely bright star instead of the large, warm disc observed from Earth. In the distance is a hypothetical small moon, which scientists believe may be orbiting this distant body. Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/R. Hurt (SSC)
