but it is well documented and even has photos!
It was first thought to have existed in 1840, and in 1906, a nice chap by the name of Percival Lowell started the search to find it (he was the first

He even (apparently) managed to get two photos of it, but had no idea he had, so they went unnoticed (what a bummer).
The poor bugger snuffed it in 1916, having never known of his discovery, and the search did not continue until 1929, courtesy of another fellow called
In 1930 they noticed something moving on the photos they had took, and after much nit picking and several more photos, and finally that halleluiah was
shouted all around, they had found planet X!
Then they named it Pluto and the rest is history.
Sorry for such a short thread, but I just wanted to put that out there.
You can read more about it about it here....(and many, many other places)
