Weird object spotted beyond Neptune

There's more going on in the outer Solar System than we're fully aware of.

Scientists have discovered a mysterious planet in a strange orbit beyond Neptune on the outer edge of the solar system and with every passing day, it’s moving upwards – a fact that makes it an oddity.

Nicknamed Niku, it appears to be a trans-Neptunian object and it has got scientists baffled. Niku, named after Chinese word for ‘Rebel’, has a diameter of just 200km (120 miles), is 160,000-times fainter than Neptune and behaves like no other similarly-sized planet in the Solar System according to newscientist.

This object orbits the Sun in a retrograde direction, meaning it rotates in the opposite direction to the Sun’s rotation.

The scientists hypothesize that its orbit is retrograde due to a collision with an unknown mass or a gravitational pull by a mystery force but till now they have no explanation why this mysterious object orbits the sun in a retrograde direction, so far.

When we talk about objects orbiting the sun in retrograde direction it’s worth noting if we follow Sitchin's well-known translations of the ancient Sumerian texts, that the planet ‘Marduk’ (the Sumerian ‘Nibiru’) and its Moons came into the solar system on its 3,600-year clockwise (retrograde) elliptical course.

The highly elliptical orbit of Halley’s comet is also retrograde which seems similar to Nibiru’s proposed orbit.



  1. Depending on where it is now, it's possible that it will change direction and fall inward doing so. The reason for every planet orbiting the same direction is simple: gravity drag. Every planet in the solar system is pulling every other planet in the solar system into the same direction of solar rotation. If indeed Niku is orbiting contra-solar and continues to orbit contra-solar, something else has to be pulling on it, which could spell big trouble for the rest of the solar system.
