View of the orbit of two exoplanets around TYC 8998-760-1

The SPHERE instrument on ESO’s Very Large Telescope has captured the first ever image of a young, Sun-like star accompanied by two giant exoplanets, located about 300 light-years away from Earth. This animation shows the orbits of the two exoplanets, compared with the size of Pluto’s orbit. (Note that the yellow circle does not represent Pluto’s real orbit, but rather the size of the orbit, which is calculated based on the dwarf planet's average distance to the Sun.)
