Sedna -Kids Learning Tube

[chorus]
My name is Sedna, a dwarf planet candidate,
I’m in the furthest reaches of our solar system in orbit.

[verse 1]
On November 14th in 2003
The Palomar Observatory is who discovered me.
The names of astronomers are Michael Brown, Chad Trujillo, and Dave Rabinowitz are how I was found.
My name Sedna means Inuit goddess of the sea,
Which derived from a young Arctic woman’s grim Eskimo story.
I’m a large minor planet, that is what I will be
Until I meet the criteria for dwarf status, you see.

[chorus]
My name is Sedna, a dwarf planet candidate,
I’m in the furthest reaches of our solar system in orbit.

[verse 2]
My distance from the sun in my furthest orbit is about 84 billion miles, I barely see it.
If you saw the sun from that distance, you wouldn’t squint,
It would be so small it could be blocked with the head of a pin.
I’m the 2nd reddest object in our solar system,
The 1st reddest is Mars, yeah I am second to him.
I am 3/4 the size of our dwarf planet Pluto,
And I’m believed to live in the inner Oort Cloud, you know.

[chorus]
My name is Sedna, a dwarf planet candidate,
I’m in the furthest reaches of our solar system in orbit.

[verse 3]
The time I’m thought to take to orbit our sun once
Is 10,500 Earth years, yeah that is a long run.
It’s predicted the last time I was closest to our sun,
Earth was coming out of its last ice age, now that isn’t fun.
I live in the coldest known region of our solar system,
It’s -240 degrees celsius where I’m from.

[chorus](x2)
My name is Sedna, a dwarf planet candidate,
I’m in the furthest reaches of our solar system in orbit.
