Q: If Tyche does exist, why would it have taken so long to find another planet in our solar system?
A: Tyche would be too cold and faint for a visible light telescope to identify. Sensitive infrared telescopes could pick up the glow from such an object, if they looked in the right direction. WISE is a sensitive infrared telescope that looks in all directions.

It is my opinion that they are forced to anounce it because it will be visible in the sky very soon.
I also suspect that it is closer than they are reporting.
