There is pleasurable news for the space-curious people! Astronomers have recently discovered a brand new object, probably a new planet, in the space. This alien planet was sighted accompanied by two little stars. This delightful discovery was made during the study of CS Cha which is a million years old binary system. The members involved in the study said that the newly discovered object has not yet been identified for what it is.
According to Christian Ginski, chief study author, Leiden Observatory (Netherlands) the recently found object is supposedly enclosed by dust particles that belong to the object only. This dust enclosure is blocking the nearby light and therefore, verifying the size of this recently found object remains incomplete, said Ginski. Hence, there are chances that it can turn out to be a brown dwarf star or a big celestial body, probably a giant planet, added Ginski.
The researchers involved in the ongoing CS Cha study were continually keeping a watch for any possible disks of dust or new planets. They were conducting this study using SPHERE (Spectro-Polarimetric High-contrast Exoplanet Research) which is located on the European Southern
