Sedna in the sky with ulus

[ #17909 ]
Dear Log,

First there was planetoids Quaoar and Varuna, and now there's planet Sedna. It's possibly bigger than Pluto, it's on an actual normal planetary orbit, quite unlike Pluto's, whose orbit is eliptical AND is 20 degrees up off the ecliptic.

Viva Sedna! Sedna Sedna Sedna! Out there in the Kuiper Belt.

"Found further away than other planets by the recently launched Spitzer Space Telescope, it has been called Sedna after the Inuit goddess of the ocean."
