Astronomers have discovered the first ekzolunu
Астрономы обнаружили экзолуну

Thanks to the telescope “Kepler” scientists have found already a lot of interesting science, planets and other celestial objects distant from the solar system. But until recently there was no single satellite orbiting the giant exoplanets. However, scientists from the University astronomers Notre Dame, analyzing data from the telescope “Kepler” ekzolunu first discovered orbiting the planet in the system of MOA-2011-BLG-262, which is located 1,800 light years from Earth.

Exoplanet discovered and her companion through the effect of gravitational microlenses in cases in which the passage of a planet in the most stellar disk, its gravitational pull starts to bend her light like a lens. Analyzing all the data, astronomers have concluded that these distortions indicate that the observed object passed in front of the outer body, which is no more than a companion planet, according

Weight discovered planet is four Jupiter masses, which is not so great indicator on space standards. In turn, the mass ekzoluny half the mass of the Earth.

Although according to the analysis and found a space object is very similar to the natural satellite of exoplanets, it is likely that the astronomers were wrong, and the data space of the body can be completely different planets . Their distance from each other is quite large, which suggests the idea of ​​an error. Unfortunately, fully confirm the data is a difficult task, since the effect of gravitational microlenses can be used only in case of successful coincidence of circumstances.
