        Scientists think it’s about the same age as the sun (around 4.5 billion years).

        Given it’s size and shape it is likely to be a s old as the earth – it is no longer a planet though which suggests it may not have formed within our solar system but has somehow become attracted into our star and now rotates around it like all the other planets do.
