This adds the hypothetical Planet 9 and 28 bodies that represent the Oort Cloud. The 28 bodies are near the edge of Celestia's render limit for bodies bound to the Sun.

Now has more hypothetical bodies. Earth Trojan and impactor, Theia. Three hypothetical planets, Phaeton*, Planet V, and "Fifth Giant". The extra moons around Earth come from the fact that the ring of derbies most likely form two moons. *=Disproven

Planet 9's size has been updated along with the orbital distances of its moons.

Why is Earth around Planet 9?

That is just something I added in the version on my main laptop, it's not actually part of the addon. So it's just something to ignore.

Are your mods part of Celestia Origin or separate from it?

Mine are separate from Celestia Origin.

Because a gas giant cant have enough moons!

No, they can not.

Possible contribution:

Named all of Planet 9's moons, and added some thin, close rings to Planet 9.
Oh and I made custom textures and medres folders...

Thank for adding the rings and names to the moons.

A new study from 2018 has revived the Phaeton theory and could have proven it correct - the asteroid belt is the fragments of at least five or six bodies, one of which could have been Earth-sized with the others being planetary-sized moons.

According to best space theory I know, the same is true for all asteroids and comets :hi:

Wouldn't it be obvious that the obsolete hypothesized 5th giant might be the Planet Nine we are looking for?

Added after 2 minutes 48 seconds:
Here is the source for the revived Phaeton theory:

Maybe those planetary-sized bodies could be planet-sized moons (like the Galilean Moons, Titan, or Triton) that collided with a super-Earth due to gravitational perturbations.

Here's a texture I made for Phaeton (based on shoginc's Kepler-22b textures from the motherlode):

A habitable planet 2 AU from the sun? Impossible.

I agree.
