Pluto Once Ninth Planet.

Once when I was young a long time ago I came to realize there were nine planets in our solar system: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, Uranus, Pluto. Sorry if I have got the order wrong but never mind you get my drift about there being nine planets in our solar system and everything was hunky dory. Except it wasn't, a researcher by the name of Brown who works for the California Institute Of Technology reduced Pluto's status to a dwarf planet.

We have all seen the wonderful pics sent back to Earth of Pluto recently and in many aspects with its blue skies and all it looks very much like Earth and renowned British star gazer Dr Brian Cox has even suggested that under Pluto's frozen surface there may be an ocean with life. That said Pluto is no longer an official ninth planet but none the less being a dwarf planet like Ceres has made it a unique world all on its own.

Now getting back to this ninth planet advocates of the belief that ancient aliens have visited the Earth in the past have always said that beyond Pluto there is another planet circling the sun called Niburu supposedly where these aliens came from and it seems if this ninth planet exists they may feel vindicated.

The ninth planet's mass is suspected to be 10 times that of the Earth and it is 20 times further from the sun. To orbit the sun it would take planet nine 10,000 - 20,000 years and Brown along with fellow researcher Batygin have not actually seen this new world but they are sure this planet exists.

The evidence comes from how debris behaves in the Kuiper belt beyond Neptune which favours some large body by gravitational pull. Mathematical modelling and computer evidence also suggests there is a large body out there in the depths of space and this has contributed to Brown and Batygin's announcement that there is definitely a ninth planet out there. Brown said for it was he who was responsible for the demotion of Pluto to a dwarf world that those who were mad at him for doing such a thing would perhaps take heart and forgive him for the discovery of this possible ninth world.

Brown hopes astronomers and all those who in the field of space research will join in the hunt for this suspected planet.
