Years of planning combined with a network of telescopes to grab the first pictures of the Kuiper Belt Object (KBO) through a method of celestial alignment, they reported on Wednesday in the British science journal Nature.
Since then, scientists have found several Kuiper belt objects (KBOs) that are nearly as big as Pluto, including one called Sedna (see "Planets on the Edge").
Some 800 Kuiper Belt objects have been discovered, and there may be as many as 70,000 with diameters of 60 kilometers or more.
