The orbit of a dwarf planet known as The Goblin has been confirmed. First spotted in October of 2015 using Japan’s Subaru telescope the planet is estimated to be about 186 miles wide and spherical. Scientists do not know a lot about this new dwarf planet. It took 3 years just to confirm its orbit. They still don’t know what its made of or even the color of the surface. This is mostly because of how far away the planet is from Earth, which is currently way beyond Pluto
The Goblin, also known as, 2015-TG387, has an elongated orbit which means that at its closest it comes to about 65 AU from the Sun and at its furthest, it is about 2,300 AU from the Sun. Pluto is about 49.3 AU from the Sun at its furthest. It takes about 40,000 years for The Goblin to make its way around the Sun. Right now The Goblin was about 80 AU from the Sun when it was discovered, which is close enough for scientists to learn about its orbit and very little else.
