Still haven't fully accounted for the missing mass that cause the Sol's wobble? Time for the would-be Herschels, Le Verriers, Adams and Tombaughs to get down to work?

If we could find one of them, we would be famous! But at 200 and 250 AU, they would be extremely faint, perhaps discoverable by detecting eclipses of background stars.
