We got you, Goblin! New dwarf planet found

Oct 03, 2018 12:10 IST

A dwarf planet nicknamed the Goblin has been discovered well beyond Pluto, further redefining our solar system. A round frozen world just 300 kilometres across, the Goblin was spotted by astronomers in 2015 around Halloween, thus its spooky name. But it wasn't publicly unveiled until now following further observations with ground telescopes. This is the third dwarf planet recently found to be orbiting on the frigid fringes of our solar system.
