Most Distant Solar System Object So Far Discovered
The astronomers named it Farout.
The distance between the Earth and the sun is an AU, or astronomical unit -- the equivalent of about 93 million miles. Farout is 120 AU from the sun. Eris, the next most distant object known, is 96 AU from the sun. For reference, Pluto is 34 AU away.
And the Voyagers are about 120AU away. Nifty that we got that far.
