The University of MI researchers say that a large rocky object, 2015 BP519, has an orbit which is tilted away from the plane on which most objects that orbit the sun lie. Observations of the orbit of the object showed that it was strongly inclined to the axis of the Solar system.
The group from the Dark Energy Study state that 2015 BP519 is the most severe Trans-Neptunian Things discovered to this day in the paper.
To be clear, this new research doesn't confirm the existence of Planet Nine, but it doesn't take the gang from Scooby-Doo to realize that the evidence is piling up heavily in its favor. It used computer simulations of the solar system to figure out how the object may have come across this odd orbit.
Astronomers have been predicting the discovery of a ninth planet in the solar system. In the year 2017, a statement from NASA had come up which said that there could be a ninth planet with a size probably bigger than the Earth having a mass ten times heavier than our planet. Simulations in which the solar system only had eight planets didn't give 2015 BP519 the same orbit that it has now. For something as extreme as 2015 BP519, the fact that this hypothetical planet slots perfectly into the simulation to explain that skewed orbit is remarkable.
He said: "It is not proof that Planet Nine exists".
PROOF mysterious Planet Nine could exist found by scientists in MAJOR scientific discovery
As Quanta Magazine reports, the study backs up a prediction made by Konstantin Batygin and Michael Brown, who argued in 2016 that the peculiar, looping orbits of worlds in the Kuiper belt is caused by a ninth planet dragging them along with its gravity.
Scientists estimate that the object has an extremely elongated orbit, small and large radii which reach 35 and 862, respectively, astronomical units (an astronomical unit equals the average radius of Earth's orbit).
The possibility for this mysterious planet hinges on the movements of other objects further than Neptune.
After that another paper was published saying that the orbit of Planet Nine may be pulling the planets 6° away from the equator of the Sun.
Those two astronomers had predicted Planet Nine's existence based on the unusual orbit of a handful of Kuiper belt objects.
