The discovery of a moon the size of Jupiter | ...


Astronomers at Columbia University have reported a second, super-sized moon orbiting a Jupiter-sized planet outside our solar system, which means that exomoons are as common in the universe as planets, and that these large or small moons are a feature of planetary systems. The team discovered the giant moon “exomoon”, which orbits the planet “Kepler 1708b”, and is located 5,500 light-years from Earth. The same team of scientists had found a large moon “Kepler 1625 b” orbiting a planet similar to the size of Jupiter.

Scientists said that both moons are likely made of gas accumulating under the influence of gravity resulting from their enormous size. The moons may have started out as planets, only to be pulled into the orbit of a larger planet.
