Nasa finds a distant star circled by eight planets, equal to the complement in our own Solar System.

Star system has record eight exoplanets

Exoplanet discovery by an amateur astronomer shows the power of citizen science

Astronomy daily picture for December 18: The Kepler 90 Planetary System

The Kepler 90 System The busy week of launches wasnt the only thing going on of course NASA announced the discovery of an eighth planet around a star called The discovery was made using AI and the system is as large as our own. Big news indeed.

Star system has record eight exoplanets. Nasa has found a distant star circled by eight planets, equal to the complement in our own Solar System. It's the largest number of worlds ever discovered in a planetary system outside our own. The star known as Kepler-90, is just a bit hotter and larger than the Sun; astronomers already knew of seven planets around it.

New Planetary System Discovered Just 54 Light-Years Away | IFLScience

An artist's rendition of the HD 7924 planetary system — just 54 light-years away from Earth — shows newly discovered exoplanets c and d, which join Planet b.

A stellar regatta around GJ436. Space boaters parked in the equatorial plane of the star wait for the hairy planet to emerge from this plane to 'ride' the planetary wind with the help of kite-surfing vessels. As they rise above the poles of the star, they obtain a breathtaking view of the entire planetary system and can glimpse at the mysterious disruptive planet, which appears as a bright spot in the background.

Oumuamua given its weird trajectory, surprised researchers immediately concluded it was from beyond our planetary system—the first interstellar object ever identified in our midst.  The rock is thought to be about 400 metres (1,300 feet) long, and thin—only about 40 m wide, a never-before-seen shape for an asteroid.

No alien 'signals' from cigar-shaped asteroid: researchers

This diagram shows our cosmic address at a glance. We see our planetary system around the Sun, our stellar neighborhood in our galaxy, our galaxy in the local group of galaxies, and our group in the entire universe.

NASA employs AI to discover planetary system as large as our own

Data from the Kepler Space Telescope has revealed the system​ ties with our own for the most number of planets known to orbit a single star.

A New and Improved Method for Measuring the Masses of Solitary Stars

Astronomers have come up with a new and improved method for measuring the masses of millions of solitary stars, especially those with planetary systems.

They are not as similar to Earth as the planet announced just last week, but the newly discovered planets HD c and d are much closer, and therefor

My God, It’s Full of Stars. In 2006, Hubble was pointed toward the center of our galaxy, 26,000 light-years away, searching for other planetary systems. For a full week it imaged nearly 200,000 of the millions of stars crammed together in a dense collection in the Milky Way galaxy's ancient central hub. The region surveyed represents one entire field of the Sagittarius Window Eclipsing Extrasolar Planet Search (SWEEPS) program.Sixteen candidate planets were discovered.

In 2014, the ALMA telescope in Chile captured this photo of a very young planetary system. A star forms from a collapsing cloud of gas and dust, which flattens as it spins. Dust particles eventually stick together to form planets, which appear as rings and gaps in the disk. This photo is the most detailed yet of an infant planetary system.

13 of the Most Amazing Things Discovered in Space This Year

The spectacular image, taken by the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) in northern Chile, shows numerous concentric rings in the disk of dust and gas surrounding HL Tau, a sunlike star found about 450 light-years away from Earth.

A solar system that is nearly 13 billion years old!

An ancient planetary system from 13 billion years ago has been discovered in the constellation Cetus, 375 lightyears from Earth, that could determine when stars first started to form. The star HIP
