What articles would a Lovecraftian astronomical periodical publish? Let's call it "Cosmic Horrors Quarterly". Perhaps with headlines like "The Stars Align" and "Non-Euclidian Math for Beginners"? :-)

I'd think an article on trans-Neptunian objects would be of interest, in
particular, discussing the state of the evidence for and against the
existence of the hypothetical Planet X, a mass calculated to be 10x that
of Earth, which could explain the orbits of some smaller Kuiper belt
objects.

Yes, and perhaps the fungi-based lifeforms that lives out there. It was from there they came right, or have I that mixed up?
