OREANDA-NEWS The planet is located in the constellation Virgo and is located at a distance of more than 102 light years from Earth. Scientists note that if it were “placed” in the solar system, the amplitude of the oscillations would be a long ellipse: from the asteroid belt to the area outside Neptune.

"This planet is another example of a system that is not similar to our Solar, but has wonderful features that make our Universe incredibly rich in its diversity," said Andrew Howard, professor of astronomy.

Most often, planets located far from their stars move in a circular orbit. Ellipsoidal vibrations indicate that the formation of the object was different. Experts believe that once the planet HR 5183 b approached a “neighbor” of about the same size, falling under the influence of its gravity.
