Yes, that and any others they haven't found yet. Fairly amazing we can see these far away objects at all in my opinion. They're dark objects very far away and usually floating against the backdrop of dark space. I don't think they get too much help in the illumination department from our sun due to the distance.

Yes Deepwater6, we really need to look at things from a different perspective. 

 

At the moment we are having difficulty trying to detect moving things with a background of a massive numbers of stars that don't move but our observation points either orbit around the earth or are at a fixed point on the surface while our planet rotates around our sun and our sun rotates around our galactic centre.

 

I have always said that we should make observations from a point relatively stationary with regards to these 3 different spins and then we will really be able to see what is actually moving as opposed to what we see now.  Unfortunately observations without spin are anathema in the modern world, until some politicians get hit by a space rock that is. ;)
