4 circles that give the impression of overlapping/spiral when they actually don't.  Gives a real headache. Pinch

Simply proves that our eyes or our eyes and mind together do not always convert what we see into the correct information...

Or to put it another way, we don't actually see everything around us correctly...

I can imagine something like that if it appeared over Fatima in the early 1900's would of caused quite the stir from the locals...

Those starling are a nuisance I believe, I was watching a program a few weeks about them, something about avian flu and how they have had to move them on or something..

This is far superior to focus on.

Strange, newly-discovered exoplanet defies planetary formation theories

December 6, 2013 | by Lisa Winter


photo credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech
 

Located about 300 light years away in the Crux constellation, HD 106906 b orbits its white main-sequence star. This exoplanet is known as a Super Jupiter, as its mass is 11 times greater than Jupiter. Because of its incredibly large size and the tremendous distance away from the host star, HD 106906 b challenges many current theories about planetary and star formation. This information comes from lead author Vanessa Bailey of the University of Arizona and the results have been accepted for publication in theAstrophysical Journal Letters.

HD 106906 b is about 650 AU away from the star, which is about 20 times the distance from the sun to Neptune. According to current planetary theories, when stars are born, dust and debris swirl around the newborn star in a disk-like shape. As the particles begin to bump into one another, they coalesce and become larger and larger, kind of like a big, dusty snowball. Eventually, the dustball gets so big, it takes on planetary characteristics. This theory also states that there just shouldn’t enough material to form a planet as massive as HD 106906 b at such a great distance. Nevertheless, there it is.

Bailey et al. does propose that this planet could be a failed star. While the host star was forming, it is possible that HD 106906 b just couldn’t accumulate enough material to ignite into a star, which would have made the system a binary star system. This is also problematic, as there is too much of a difference in mass ratio. In typical binary systems, the mass ratio of the two stars maxes out at 10 to 1. In this case, it is closer to 100 to 1.

If it doesn’t form like a planet or a star, how the heck did it get there? Nobody is really quite sure yet. The planet itself is only about 13 million years old (quite the baby compared to our 4.5 billion year old Earth). It is also much cooler than its host star, which temperatures reaching  2,700 F (1,500 C). Astronomers were also able to detect remnants of the dusty disk that spurred formation of the star and planets.

Further study will examine the debris disk as well as analyze the planet’s orbit in order to better understand this mysterious giant planet that, by current knowledge, shouldn’t even exist.

I'm always confused when they say "newly discovered" particularly when the data for this one says it's not that far away...where has it been, in our blind spot..???

Something 300 light years away, how could you take anything about it seriously ?

300LY is a reasonable way away, and when finding objects, it's not always a matter of spotting it through a telescope rather finding evidence of a bodies suspected existance. Suns are fairly straight forward but planets that are a fair way away from their sun with no reflected light, they are often found by chance by them casting shadows on other known objects in that system as they pass them on their orbit. Mostly just by chance and a lot of gazing at specks light years away

If it's viewable it's worth taking seriously, particularly if it's only a recent observation,,,with the universe expanding faster and faster, it tells you that this thing must traveling towards us..

They locate planets using light dips, when a planet passes in between us and it's home sun, it clips the light from that sun and produces a dip or change in light colour, this is the tell that a planet is orbiting that sun...least that's how I understand it..
