for a massive perturber is a bit puzzling." First, 10 of the 12 bodies with peculiar perihelia dive far enough into the Kuiper belt to possibly feel Neptune's gravity.
These three groups have more distant perihelia than the Kreutz group and many objects survive perihelion.
Such an object would naturally explain not only the clustered perihelia but also the dynamically puzzling orbits of Sedna and its kin.
Because of this, we can only detect Sedna and 2012 [VP.sub.113] for a fraction of their orbits, when they happen to be near their perihelia. We would not spot these objects or even Mars-size objects on similar orbits most of the time because they would be too distant and thus too faint.
