Missing Orcus 90482 dwarf planet

  • Hey, this is one of my favorite dwarf planets,
    I had several psychic experiences I ascribed to it,
    it's also used in astrology to do with contextual group evolution,
    a transneptonian object with a moon, and it doesn't seem to be included in
    stellarium.

    I'd like to see it included, or perhaps some instructions on how I could
    include it myself.

    Since 0.11.2 Stellarium contains Orcus in solar system database. If you used
    other version of Stellarium you can add Orcus via Solar System Editor plugin.
