Matt – The search for planet Kolob
Kolob is a star or planet described in Mormon scripture. Reference to Kolob is found in the Book of Abraham, a work published by Joseph Smith, Jr., the founder of the Latter Day Saint movement. According to this work, Kolob is the heavenly body nearest to the throne of God.

Other Latter Day Saints (commonly referred to as Mormons) consider Kolob to be a Christian metaphor.
