Scientists have taken the first photographs of a solar system 130 light years from Earth. The three planets are orbiting a young star in the constellation of Pegasus.
Astronomers have been challenged in the past to take images of far-away planets. The planets of other solar systems are usually impossible to see due to the glare of their parent stars. But the planets of this new solar system were photographed using “high-precision ground-based telescopes and sophisticated computer processing to cancel out the light from the star.”
