Astronomers find evidence of second moon outside of solar system

Posted by in category: space

Over the last thirty years, over 4,000 planets around stars other than the Sun, otherwise known as exoplanets, have been discovered by astronomers but only two exomoons. This is because usually planets are larger and therefore more easily identifiable.

The first exomoon candidate, which the same team of astronomers said was roughly the size of Neptune, was found in 2018 but has yet to be confirmed.
