Although the planet’s brightness is known, estimating its size requires knowing what fraction of incident light it reflects. Infrared observations could provide that information, but the planet was too faint and cold for the Spitzer Space Telescope to spot.

colors lmao. so what happens when we find a planet that is a certain color, but it is made of something not found here on earth? guess we will be wrong then right?
This kind of reminds me of a science book i saw that tells the different layers of the sun. Like this fusedweb.pppl.gov...
yet.. no one has any evidence that the sun has a core, or layers. And there is no way to back up these claims. No one on earth will ever get close enough to find out... Yet they teach it in schools.

What surprises me, is that no one has commented in the conspiracy behind this discovery to keep it hidden from the public.

does anyone else feel pissed off that they dont tell the public about this kinda stuff right away?
they couldn’t confirm much about it until it was analysed again last January[...]data is still being processed and it will take at least six months before astronomers can determine the planet’s exact size

...Also im a bit confused. The 'solarsystem' between the two men counts what i can see 11 objects. Does that mean that the 12th planet, Nibiru, is the dot in front of the guy in the middle? Some say our moon is depicted, some say its not. Anyone know the real deal?
What do you think?
