Telescopes will do no good.<quoted text>

That is just to demonstrate ecliptic relationships. The earth has one to the sun, the sun to the galaxy, etc. But within each relationship you have bodies that cause perturbations in the mean relationships. They can be internal or external. Meaning a celstial body within the system or the effects of where the solar system is in the galaxy. A constant change of gravity and magnetic relationships working on that ecliptic. Gravitational or magnetic forces working on the outermost bodies tend to lever the disk, at least to a small degree. These result in what are called ignorable perturbations by some. Which they may be ignorable if observed over a very long period and they prove to be periodic. This is fitting in with the larger scheme of things.
The myopic view of various science disciplines make it very difficult to see things in anything near real time on a cosmic scale. Has to do with sheer numbers of things to observe and the number crunching required to get the larger picture. Plus the focus on the ecliptic of our solar system. This accretion disk fascination can take your eyes off other directions.
You are going to have celestial bodies in this solar system wildly variant from the ecliptic. This solar system is where one of the SAGDEG loops with the Milky Way intersects. The Milky Way had been eating it for a long time, and this just so happens to be where it takes a bite of it. A transverse entry to the ecliptic of stars and all sorts of debris of various sizes, along with their gravitational and magnetic influences. We just don't really know what directions things are coming from.
The limits of scientific knowledge now gives an "appearance" of stability for a long time into the future. Reality is otherwise.
Due to the heliosphere and our own magnetosphere, there is a greater magnetic influence to objects transversing the ecliptic, which is a lot more powerful than the periodic pulses of gravity. The tug or repulsion will extend for a much, much, much longer distance than straight gravity. Instead of working from the outside and spinning inward, you have them vectoring in on a polar path, and at a greater speed.
There have been changes in recent decades that have been overlooked.
