dc.description.abstractRecent discoveries show a collection of distant Trans-Neptunian Objects (TNOs) that exhibit unusual similarities in orbital behavior and physical location. This leads astronomers, most notably Batygin and Brown (2016a), to believe there exists a ninth, Neptune-sized, planet in our solar system that perturbs these small objects into similar orbits through long term interactions. This work seeks to provide further evidence of such a planet as well as an approximate location in space where it might be observed.en
