Astronomers discovered a dwarf planet that is even farther away than Pluto. It's named "20-12 V-P 1-13." Scientists say the dwarf planet's orbit reaches into a new edge of the solar system. It is located 83 times the distance between the Earth and the sun. Reddish in color, scientists suspect it is icy because of its distance from the sun. The dwarf planet is about 280 miles in diameter.
