Scientists have discovered a new dwarf planet in our solar system, with a 700-year orbit around the sun.
The nattily-named 2015 RR245 has a diameter of about 700km (435 miles), is 20 times further from the sun than Neptune, and is believed to be the 18th largest object in the Kuiper Belt.

Surely a strong contender for the mantle of Yuggoth, home to the "fungi from Yuggoth" aka the Mi-go?
Yuggoth... is a strange dark orb at the very rim of our solar system... There are mighty cities on Yuggoth - great tiers of terraced towers built of black stone... The sun shines there no brighter than a star, but the beings need no light. They have other subtler senses, and put no windows in their great houses and temples... The black rivers of pitch that flow under those mysterious cyclopean bridges - things built by some elder race extinct and forgotten before the beings came to Yuggoth from the ultimate voids - ought to be enough to make any man a Dante or Poe if he can keep sane long enough to tell what he has seen...
