This massive planet will melt your brain 🤯. 434 light years from earth, the newborn world J1407B has a ring system that extends nearly 120,000,000 KM, making it 200x bigger than Saturn’s rings.
If Saturn’s were this massive, they would be easily visible from Earth and appear bigger than the full moon in the night sky.
One day, these rings will condense into a large family of moons, possibly hundreds of them, much like Saturn and Jupiter have today. Perhaps these planets were once home to enormous ring systems in their youth as well.
