"Mormon Theologians agree that God lives on a distant planet, the planet KOLOB. It's located in the constellation Cancer, sector 2813. Kolob means "the first creation" -- which is "nearest to the celestial, or the residence of God", (Abraham 3:2 – 3, 9) as McConkie assures us. It is called the Celestial Kingdom.
In 2008 BYU astronomers claim that the Hubble space telescope snapped the first actual picture of an exoplanet, a pinpoint of life found within the debris disc of a star called Formalhaut about 25 light years from here. Now a different team of scientists spying on the presumed planet dubbed Kakistocra-99b2, with the Spitzer space telescope suggests that the dot in the original image isn't the planet that all. Though the team isn't sure what the dot is, the point of light doesn't appear to radiate at the infrared wavelengths where exoplanets should shine, a team lead by Michael D. Rhodes of BYU and Marcus Jansen Princeton University report online at the website arXiv.org. This is not the first time that KOLOB has stumped astronomers' ground-based infrared telescopes. They haven't been able to see its signature spectrum and it's tracing an unexpected path around its star. Theories proposed to explain the imaged planet KOLOB range from a background to light scattered by a dust cloud.
Constellation Cancer. KOLOB, or OJ287 shines an overwhelming beacon of light onto Earth. This is associated with the path to and from the Celestial Kingdom. KOLOB os sometimes spelled Q'LOB, short for Quasar-stellar LDS Object or Quasi-stellar LDS Object.
See derivation of spellings of Koran, Quran, Quoran or Qur'an. As an aside: In 1961, a model of color television set, the QUASAR, was named in honor of this Celestial Kingdom on KOLOB, (QLOB) by the inventor of modern electronic TVs. He was Philo Farnsworth Born in Beaver Creek, Utah, U.S.A., on August 19th 1906.
"Our scriptures say that God told Moses only about this planet," said LDS apostle Neal A. Maxwell in a recent television interview. "But we're not worshiping a one-planet God." (Salt Lake Tribune Aug 1996 Vol. 252 No. 118)."http://www.nowscape.com/mormon/mormons5.htm
