Peering into the far reaches of the solar system, astronomers have spied a pink frozen world 12 billion kilometers from the sun.Like Sedna, VP is also a dwarf planet.It measures about 450 kilometers across, or half the diameter of Sedna.Unlike red and shiny Sedna, the newfound object is more pink and much fainter, which had made it hard to detect.VP is currently the third farthest object in the solar system after dwarf planet Eris and Sedna, but it has an eccentric, elongated orbit that can take it as far as 67.6 million kilometers from the sun. Sedna can loop out as far as 135 million kilometers from the sun at its farthest point.
