Astronomers and researchers recently came across a pink-coloured object that they think is a Dwarf planet. Officially named VG18, but nicknamed Farout, the dwarf planet is 18 BILLION kilometres from the sun.
The pink planet supposedly has its colour due to it being rich in ice. It’s also extremely slow moving, with researchers saying it takes more than 1,000 years to make one trip around the sun. Farout is 120 astronomical units away. To put that in perspective, Pluto is only 34 AU away…far out.
Far out, dude.
No, seriously, 2018 VG18 Farout is about 4x the distance to Neptune. https://t.co/LAm7yoKGm9
