Scientists have tried to unravel the mystery that distorts the orbit of a young star in the constellation Thien Tho. It is a ghost that weighs 1,272 to 1,908 times more than Earth.
According to the sheet Space, This ghost is a giant planet and was the decisive success of Very Large Telescope (VLT) located in Chile, because photographing an exoplanet is very difficult and it is the lightest exoplanet that this superior remote sensing device has ever recorded.
The star in question is called Hare AFapproximately 87.5 light years from Earth and located Constellation Lepus. Two groups of scientists simultaneously studied this star following data collected by the European Space Agency’s (ESA) Hipparcos and Gaia space telescopes, two spacecraft carrying a sky-mapping mission.

But AF Leporis showed an unstable trajectory, as if being pulled by something. “Spectrum” This is most likely a planet it originated from, but it must be so large that gravity is strong enough to clearly impact the parent star’s orbit.
Discover “spectrum”, two research groups from the European Southern Observatory (ESO) mobilized a ground-based observatory, the VLT. They managed to directly image the planet, confirming the hypothesis.
The scientists used the VLT’s adaptive optics system called SPHERE helps correct signal distortions caused by the Earth’s atmosphere; with the coronagraph, a device that helps block interference from the star’s strong light, helping to see one’s surroundings more clearly.
The photographed planet has a mass 4 to 6 times that of the largest planet in the solar system, Jupiter, or about 1,272 to 1,908 times that of Earth. It orbits the parent star at the same distance as Saturn orbits the Sun.

If there is an error with the Chilean telescope that captured a “ghost” that caused an entire star to “go astray,” please contact us so we can fix it.
