I was fascinated by this article ...

https://www.spacenewsfeed.com/index.php/news/5292-second-alignment-plane-of-solar-system-discovered 

The source paper is in ApJ and so it obviously has credence.

Does anyone have any views etc on how seriously we should take it (I don't have access to the ApJ paper so have not been able to read the original). I like the idea that the Milky Way has an observable effect on our solar system.

It is open access
