Farfarout distance from the Sun

Farfarout distance from the Sun

While searching for the hypothetical Planet X, Scott Sheppard, an astronomer at the Carnegie Institution for Science in Washington, D.C. has found what might be the most distant object ever identified in the Solar System. It orbits the Sun at a massive distance of 140 Astronomical Units (AU), and for now, the astronomers are jokingly calling the new object “FarFarOut”. It is further away from the previous record holder, the “Farout” (far-out-there).
