Back in the old days when astrologists attempted to predict the orbit of Mercury, they created a new, invisible planet called "Vulcan" in an attempt to explain why they couldn't get their predictions right. How could they have explained that? "Well, we were almost right, but then this other planet came out of nowhere and.. actually, never mind. You've probably never even heard of it." amirite?
