Previously Unseen Moon-Forming Disc Photographed Around Exoplanet


Astronomers studying distant exoplanets managed to capture the first-ever image of what is believed to be a moon-forming disc around an exoplanet. The wondrous sight was reportedly spotted by researchers stationed at the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) in Chile. The remarkable ring of glowing space dust and gas surrounds an exoplanet designated 'PDS 70c,' which scientists described as a Jupiter-like alien world "orbiting a star nearly 400 light-years away."
