New Solar System Discoveries (Public Planetarium Show)

Description

Title: New Solar System Discoveries

Location: W.J. McCallion Planetarium, Burke Science Building B149, McMaster University

Description: Did you know new celestial objects are discovered beyond Neptune's orbit nearly every month? Some of which are nearly the size of Pluto? Did you know Earth has a 2nd Moon? Have you heard the latest on the search for the elusive "Planet Nine?" Is there really a planet called Niribu in our solar system that will soon impact the Earth? In this show, we take a journey through recent history and show the latest Solar System discoveries. We also reveal which alleged objects in our solar system cannot actually be there. The solar system remains vastly uncharted, but the observations we've done so far help us better constrain what is left to find.
