The most distant object in our solar system has been identified by Astronomy scientists.
It was given the appropriate nickname “Farfarout” and classified as Planet Earth.
This means that it is too small to be considered a planet or dwarf planet but still a mass orbiting our sun.
There was a time when astronomers believed that Pluto was the farthest object orbiting the sun.
Technological advances mean that scientists now have a deeper insight into space.
Scientifically known as the 2018 AG37, Farfarout is located approximately 12.4 billion miles from the Sun.
By comparison, Earth is only about 93 million miles away.
The dwarf planet Pluto is about 3.7 billion miles away.
However, Farfarout sometimes moved closer to the Sun and Earth in its orbital path of 1,000 years.
Its orbital shape means that there is a point every 1000 years at which Varvarot becomes closer to the Sun than both Neptune and Pluto.
So it might be the most distant object in our solar system right now but it won’t always hold that address.
There is a dwarf planet called Goblin which is currently closer to the Sun than Farfarout but has the ability to move further away from its orbital path.
David Tholen searched from University of Hawaii He said: “Farfarout’s orbital dynamics can help us understand how Neptune formed and evolved, as Farfarout likely threw itself into the outer solar system by getting very close to Neptune in the distant past.”
“Farfarout will likely interact with Neptune again because their orbits continue to intersect.”
Farfaroot’s orbital time was 1,000 years, which meant researchers had to study it for years to determine its course.
It was actually discovered in 2018 but its exact distance was not determined until recently.
Astronomers believe that it is about 250 miles wide.
He would remain under observation and would eventually be given an official name more dangerous than Farfarout and less specific to data than 2018 AG37.
