APOD: 2012 VP113: A New Furthest Known Object in Solar System (2014 Mar 31) Image Credit: S. S. Sheppard (CIS) & C. Trujillo (Gemini Obs.), NOAO http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap140331.html Explanation: What is the furthest known object in our Solar System? The new answer is 2012 VP113, an object currently over twice the distance of Pluto from the Sun. Pictured above is a series of discovery images taken with the Dark Energy Camera attached to the NOAO's Blanco 4-meter Telescope in Chile in 2012 and released last week. The distant object, seen moving on the lower right, is thought to be a dwarf planet like Pluto. Previously, the furthest known dwarf planet was Sedna, discovered in 2003. Given how little of the sky was searched, it is likely that as many as 1,000 more objects like 2012 VP113 exist in the outer Solar System. 2012 VP113 is currently near its closest approach to the Sun, in about 2,000 years it will be over five times further. Some scientists hypothesize that the reason why objects like Sedna and 2012 VP113 have their present orbits is because they were gravitationally scattered there by a much larger object -- possibly a very distant undiscovered planet. http://carnegiescience.edu/news/solar_systems_edge_redefined http://dx.doi.org/10.1038/nature13156 http://carnegiescience.edu/ http://www.gemini.edu/ http://www.noao.edu/ Starship Asterisk* • APOD Discussion Page http://asterisk.apod.com/discuss_apod.php?date=140331 #APOD
