Super Saturn Spotted: J-1407B
Using powerful optics, scientists have discovered a planet-like body with rings 200 times the size of Saturn’s. U-S and Dutch astronomers say this body, otherwise known as J1407B lies some 400 light years away from Earth. This is the first time such a system has been spotted outside of our solar system. Although this astronomical discovery was initially made in 2012, the detailed analysis of its data was recently completed and published.
