Exoplanetary Scratchpad

[SysBP Img]

Star with a possible planet that may have an extensive ring system around it, similar to a coaletion disk that could later form moons. Possibly the second such "super-Saturn" world discovered, which is half hidden in a disk surrounding the star. The star was dimmed every 25 days, for much longer than a planet's disk would produce. The rings would stretch 200 times wider than Saturn's. The main object is mose likely a super jovian, though it could be a brown dwarf. The rings would be tilted perpendicularly like those of Uranus's. It might not appear like a nice ring system like Saturn's, but rather like a cocoon around the planet. It's also possible that the blip seen is due to a clump of debris and not a planet with rings.
