Planet Nine may be adding Wobble to the Solar System

Planet Nine — the undiscovered planet at the edge of the solar system — may be responsible for the unusual tilt of the Sun, according to a new study.
●    The large and distant planet that was predicted to exist in January this year may be adding a wobble to the solar system, giving the appearance that the Sun is tilted slightly, researchers said.
●    All of the planets orbit in a flat plane with respect to the Sun, roughly within a couple degrees of each other. 
●    This planet is about 10 times the size of Earth with an orbit that is about 20 times farther from the Sun.
●    Planet Nine, based on their calculations, appears to orbit at about 30 degrees off from the other planets’ orbital plane.
