The dwarf planet's current name is 2012 VP113, and it is located in a "wasteland or badland of the solar system."
Scientists have discovered a pink frozen object 7 1/2 billion miles from the sun.
It's the second such object to be discovered in the far reaches of the solar system beyond Pluto long thought to be deserted. Until now, the lone resident in this part of the solar system was an oddball dwarf planet spotted in 2003 named Sedna.
The latest discovery suggests there are probably lots of similar objects in this region.
The discovery was detailed in Thursday's issue of the journal Nature.
