The unknown planet is going in the wrong direction . . .
There is considerable evidence that a Neptune-sized planet may exist in the outer solar system.
So why exactly can Astronomers not find this planet now that we know it possibly exists? Especially if it is large.
My theory is they have all ready found it but do not know they have found it. It is plainly visible on their photo plates.
So why wouldn’t they know it?
I think the planet is rotating around the Sun in the opposite direction to every other planet in the solar system.
My own guess would be it is equally distant to two normal planets orbit around the Sun. In the area between Mars and Jupiter we have an asteroid belt.
I am suggesting that the Ort Cloud belt counts as a planet. So just like the asteroid belt counts, then it might be equally distant so that the planet is really way out there.
If you look at the orbits of every major planet in our solar system they form a ring similar to the ring of ripples on a lake. Calculating these ripples distance from one another forms a fairly consistent predictable orbit for the ninth planet if you ignore the minor planets in the outer asteroid/comet belt. Bode’s Law was an early example of this idea. The dynamics of the ripple effect might be a little more realistic than the set number of Bode’s Law.
So if it is out there where I think it is, the only excuse I can come up with for not finding it is: it is going in a direction and possibly an angle off the other planets to such an extent that even though it shows up on the plates it does not consistently show a progressive orbit. It may be complicated by the idea that it is at an angle of 50 degrees off and possibly south of the orbits of ever other planet in the solar system.
That makes it virtually impossible to find unless you actually know where to look.
My guess is that it never originated here. There is a huge amount of matter that is unaccounted for in our galaxy. Maverick bodies are likely to be everywhere. The most crazy actual planet in our Solar System is Venus. With its day longer than its year. With its fantastically high surface temperature. With its very dense Hydrocarbon atmosphere with sulfur. With a considerable amount of evidence that it is a relatively recent edition to our Solar System.
I am saying we may have a Brown Dwarf Star generating rocky planets in our outer solar system somewhere. Orbits do not necessarily have to follow Jupiter’s example. Though every known planet does with the exception of one small planet near Neptune.
Neptune as a very hot core. Where did that hot core come from? I am suggesting it might have a rocky core and that it came from this same brown dwarf breaking up gradually.
This could suggest a number of Venus and Earth type bodies floating around in the outer reaches of the Solar System. More likely would be bodies about the size of Pluto give or take some.
If there is a brown dwarf out there it has to be virtually invisible. IF it is a hot core, and cold outer surface with a huge ocean of water then volcanic action might actually blow planet sized objects occasionally off it’s surface. Such actions might predict a change in orbit each time such a body is born.
The alternative is a planet in an extreme comet like orbit that could be anywhere in the outer system including an orbit taking it as far out as a light year or two. Though I find it possible it is not likely to be in such an orbit without it breaking free entirely of the Sun’s gravity.
I would go over the data found to see if there is a consistent body traveling in the wrong direction on the plates.
