Video: Dwarf Planet Dubbed 'The Goblin' Discovered

In the process of searching for signs of a massive planet thought to be  lurking in our solar system, astronomers discovered a dwarf planet which  they have dubbed 'The Goblin.' The rather diminutive object is believed  to be around 186 miles wide and has an odd orbit that scientists  suspect could be due to the influence of a larger celestial body  colloquially known as 'Planet Nine.' 

The existences of this mysterious world, long the subject of speculation in paranormal and conspiracy circles,  gained mainstream credibility back in 2014 when scientists theorized  that movements of distant objects in the solar system were being caused  by a massive and heretofore undiscovered planet. The hypothesis was  further strengthened in January of 2016, when another team of  astronomers revealed that their mathematical models indicated that,  indeed, an enormous Planet Nine appeared to be somewhere out there in  space.
