    Well... it'd be better than calling it Mikey Mouse... I sort of like the name as it is: "Planet Nine"... it sounds like the title of one of those old cheesy movies by Ed Wood

    Plan 9 from Outer Space. That's a real gem.

    Mickey Mouse visits his lawyer to get a divorce from Mini Mouse. The attorney inquires as to the reason. Mickey responds "because she is #$%&"=@ goofy. The attorney tells Mickey he will have a hard time getting a divorce for reasons of mental disability. Mickey responds " no you don't understand. She has been #$%&"=@ Goofy"!

    This thing is supposed to be huge. Why could they not detect it long ago? Something with a large mass like that has to have an effect on other objects. They didn't at least know something was out there?

    It's closest approach to the sun is at 200 times the earth's orbit radii from the sun. Also, it has a period of between 10,000 and 20,000 years! ... that makes it very hard to find using conventional, brute-force methods

    Maybe this is the fabled planet that is always on the opposite side of the sun from us so we can never see it. :D

    Because it only approached our solar system recently.

    It already has a name. "Death Star".

    Since the Death Star was first described as a "small moon", this one would have to be the "Ultra-Mega Death Star". :D

    Maybe the naming committee will settle for Death Star Nine or, more simply, "DS9", which would make people from several camps giddy. :D

    I think "Necro-Star" would sound much better :p
