Medieval Anglo-Saxons may have seen Planet X

News flash – there is unknown planet depicted on the tapestry from Dark Ages. On the Bayeux Tapestry, we can see Halley’s Comet passed by scared peasants in the 1066 year.

Scientists call this unknown planet – Planet Nine. They believe it can be possibly found far away, in the deepest corner of our university, out of solar system. Existence of the big icy planet is only hypothetical for now.

However, it seems that our ancestors were surer about Planet Nine. Tow brave explorers, scientists from Belfast Queen’s University in Northern Ireland hope to find clues about mysterious planet in ancient scrolls and even tapestries.

Marilina Cesario, the medievalist from Queen’s University says that they are looking on the record in ancient Irish, Russian, Latin, English sources that have been overlooked for centuries. She says that our ancestors were fascinated by everything from heavens probably even more than modern people.

Ancient witnesses recorded everything they believe were suspicious and extraordinary, signing times and dates.

If this planet exists, it is 10 times bigger than Earth, and 20 times away from the sun than Neptune. It is not Pluto and not Nibiru, which some of conspiracy theory fans believe will destroy Earth sooner or later.

The existence of this planet is suspected mainly because of gravitational forces inside the Kuiper Belt, a line of bodies from ice closer to Neptune.

Skies have already been scanned with Subaru Telescope, the most powerful tool of our times. And still, no new planet was found.

According to Marilina Cesario’s co-worker, Pedro Lacerda, the astronomer, and head of the project, ancient tapestries and records may help to locate the planet. With modern technologies, scientists are able to tell what comets and planets were seen during Middle Ages, in what day and year.
