Astronomers Spot 2 Fascinating Alien Planets Around Ultracool Star

In a discovery, Astronomers have discovered two exoplanets that orbit a star located 100 light years from Earth, as per a story from Space reporting.

The two new exoplanets have been described as Super-Earths that are around 30% bigger than Earth and are orbiting the dwarf star within 2.7 Earth days. 

The first planet is identified as LP 890-9b. The second one is LP 890-9c. 

It is also 40 percent bigger than Earth and completes its orbit in 8.5 Earth days.

Astronomers have noticed that this second world is inside the habitable area of the host star.

This study has been published in the journal Astronomy and Astrophysics. 

These celestial objects have been classified as exoplanets according to NASA's Transiting Exoplanets Survey Satellite (TESS), a part of the American NASA space agency NASA.
