Astronomers discovers new planet "Beta Pictoris C"

Astronomers discovered a second planet orbiting Beta Pictoris C – an emerging star in our galaxy – giving astronomers a rare glimpse of a planetary system in the making.

According to the Phys, Anne Marie Lagrange, an astronomer at the National Center for Scientific Research in France, said: “We are talking about a giant planet three thousand times larger than the planet, 2.7 Time from his star”.

Complement the new planet, which he called Beta Pictoris C Orbit almost every 1200 days, like a gas giant planet Beta Pictoris B , which was discovered by Lagrange and her team in 2009.

Pictoris Beta Spin at a sudden speed of about 25 kilometers per second

Discovered Pictoris c Beta By analyzing 10-year high-resolution data obtained using instruments at the La Silla Observatory in northern Chile.

Scientists said that Pictoris Beta Spin at a sudden speed of about 25 kilometers per second (90.000 Kilometers per hour or 56,000 miles per hour), as the mass Beta Pictoris nearly twice the mass of the sun and can be seen with the naked eye visible to the naked eye.

“This is probably the best planetary system we know to understand the early stage of formation and evolution,” Lagrange said.
