Suddenly a new meaning was available for the Law, for it had "predicted" what no one would have thought possible, a new planet. Bode now was entirely convinced of the Law, and thus he also believed that there had to be a planet between Mars and Jupiter.

Could a theory be made for it ? These were questions that after 1847 had to be asked. A final anecdote concerns the "discovery" of the planet "Vulcan". 17) came to the conclusion that (given the correct mass for Venus) an error in the assumed motion of Mercury's perihelion could only be accounted for if there existed some unknown planet or planets between Mercury and the Sun. Immediately thereafter, M. Lescarbault, a physician at Orgeres, Eure-et-Loir, France, stated that he had observed what he thought was the new planet on March 26, 1859.
