Mike Brown of Cal-tech, who kicked out Pluto from the planet family, has said that there is reason to believe that there is planet circling 20 times farther away from the sun than Earth.

The planet is said to be 10 times bigger than Earth and orbiting far beyond Neptune. However the planet has not been observed directly.

“We haven’t seen it yet, but we’ve seen its gravitational influence on the outer part of our solar system, so we know it’s there. We’re starting to look.” said Mike Brown

He further added that this might be the only explanation that can be arrived upon in regard to “some very strange behavior at the edge of our solar system”
