This amazing discovery has been made by astronomers close to the multi-planetary system within our galaxy. The system is 33 light-years from Earth.
The system was first discovered in October 2021 when Mitchell Coney, a postgraduate from the Cavalier Institute of Astrophysics (study of astronomical objects and their movements) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Space Research Moto was analyzing data from the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite Center.
The focus of astronomers was on the star HD 260655, which was hosting two large Earth-like planets at the center of the system.
Quinomoto saw these two rotating objects in the depths of light coming from the star HD 26065. They then used the mission’s science inspection pipeline to examine the signals received and classified the bodies as ESS objects of interest or possible aliens.
This type of classification process takes many years, but in this case the period was shortened due to the stored data of HD 260655.
