Another one like our Solar System!
A team of astronomers was able to obtain the first image of a sun-like star with multiple planets.
Unlike our solar system, this one has two giant air giants with distant orbits. For the first time, an exoplanet family orbiting the star-like sun (exoplanet is a planet orbiting a star other than our Sun) has been photographed. Astronomers used a very large telescope in Chile to orbit a young star in a photo of two giant planets that have a mass similar to that of the Sun.
Known as TYC 8998-760-1, it is located about 300 light-years from the Musca constellation. The 17 million year old planetary family is much younger than our 4 billion year old solar system. Although astronomers have discovered thousands of space planets, many are not directly observed. Instead they are presumed to be climbing shadows in front of the stars or as invisible forces pulling towards their stars.
Only tens of thousands of planets have been photographed around the other stars, and only one of those two stars has more than one planet. Alexander Bohn, an astronomer at the University of Leiden in the Netherlands, says this is not the same as the sun. One is larger than the sun and the other is not.
Both of these galaxies are not the same as those found in the Solar System. The inner planet is a giant 14 times the mass of Jupiter, and Earth is 160 times farther away than the Sun. The outer mass is six times the mass of Jupiter and twice the orbit of its sister planet.
In comparison, the Voyager 1 spacecraft, which crossed the border in 2012, marking the Sun's magnetic field and interstellar space, is still closer to the Sun than to the planet and the star. This can give the exoplanet family a new understanding of how to make solar panels.
