A Planet Independent Of Star Spotted
Astronomers have found a Rogue Planet or a Planet Without a Star to orbit just a 100 light years away. The planet, dubbed CFBDSIR2149-0403 is first of kind discovered. Although Scientists knew about Rogue planets but they never found one. This Spotted planet is up to seven times the size of Jupiter and its about 50 and 120 millions years old, it has a temperature of approximately 400 degrees Celsius.
It can be also a scenario that the planet CFBDSIR2149-0403 might have moved away while formation from its parent system. Rich in methane and water, this rogue world is found to be part of a group of around 30 very young stars known as the AB Doradus Moving Group.
Finally its Existence supports theory of Orphan planets or free-planets. It is also possible that there might be many more such planets.
