The thing is that plane - or direction - planets orbit in is the only plane that has been extensively studied. I'm well aware that amateurs look for
skies beyond that, but I also know as fact that the system Solar System is in is so much accepted that, it is next to impossible to even convince
scientists to look elsewhere. It is them who have telescopes that have enough power to actually detect something that isn't obvious even to
And, well, yes, there are a handful of amateurs who have such telescopes, but they are usually ones who already accept all as granted. I know that in
astronomy, nothing much is granted, except our theories about our own Solar System when it comes to plane of planets orbiting.
There is belief in everything. Can somebody point me to a single study of sky searching for moving objects that is NOT in plane of currently known
orbiting bodies? There is no such study, and this one was found by accident.
I don't believe we are ever going to find a planet X or that there are large, planet size, bodies in that plane, but there must be an immense amount
of matter orbiting.
