Look like we may have a new planet in our system. NASA is set to make an official announcement later today.

I hate the name it should be called Nibiru since that's what the Sumerians (the fist advanced civilization) called it. Or at the very least Marduk since that's what the Babylonians changed it too.  :-\

I am quite disapointed in NASA for this...

Are you talking about that "Planet X" nonsense?

edit: Sedna is more like ''Little Mumu'' described by the Sumerians, a planet closer to the Sun than Nibiru, I feel like a tard for not catching that...

I think that is so cool!!!

I like the name Sedna, and it is amazing, how the sun looks. Also Is it a "ice planey" like pluto?

That's just a computer model you know.

And yes it is an icy planet much like Pluto, except it's colder, much colder.

5 Planets Visible at one time

Pretty cool, my son right now is really into the moon and sun (sun go night night...moon go night night)

He noticed Venus tonight as we were coming into the house "Dad...Star!"  "No son that's the planet Venus, although the Ancients thought it to be a lush garden planet due to its brilliant appearance...its actually a ball of toxic hot gases"..."Dad...Star!"

I still remember my telescope from when I was a kid, I need to get Max one too when he's older, its pretty cool

I'm looking forward to seeing some nice pictures captured on film. I hope they show up on the Astronomy Picture of the Day Archive. They have fantastic pictures in high resolution stored.  8)
