Near the solar system discovered planet
A red dwarf named Barnard‘s Star approximately six-light stars from the Sun. Barnard’s star, the closest stellar neighbor of our Solar System, also has the characteristic of being the fastest moving star at night. It is also wobbly in its orbit as well. This shake is merged with the subject of the exoplanet discovered.
Exoplanet Discovered! Located Very Close to the Solar System
The star in question is thought to be more than twice the age of the Sun. However, it is only 16% of that of the Sun. An article published in the journal Nature, combining 20 years of research, says there is a “99%” probability that the orbit of the Barnard Star will be pulled by an exoplanet. This planet is thought to be three times the size of the earth and covered in ice.
Astronomers first assumed to be aware of this planetary difference twenty years ago when making measurements of the speed of Barnard’s Star. It could be a large planet applying its own gravity to Barnard’s Star as it orbits its main star. But much more information is needed to say this for sure.
Now, after 20 years, a new investigation has been carried out. An international team of scientists studied more than 700 velocity measurements of Barnard’s Star in a recent study, and the explanation for this sway in the star’s orbit is that the local star revolves every 233 days.
