We Found Chiron! Next, Planet 9…

 

In our hunt for Planet 9 we have already found a lot of interesting previously known objects, such as asteroids. One of the most exciting finds we’ve made so far is the detection of the minor planet Chiron! The image above shows the red, green, and blue dots that the object made as it moved across the Australian night sky during the SkyMapper Telescope observations.

We still haven’t found the elusive Planet 9, however there are plenty of images left to search through, so please keep helping out at www.planet9search.org.
