Ringed planet ? No wonder gun.
But , is there a more heavenly objects like asteroids that ringed pretty well?
The latest research shows that there are things like that . Astronomers find first ringed asteroid in the universe.
Felipe Braga – Ribas do observation on Chariklo , heavenly objects that orbit the Sun between the orbits of Saturn and Uranus do Observatories Nacional , Rio de Janeiro .
Chariklo is known objects denganm term Centaur , objects between the orbits of Jupiter to Uranus which have unstable orbits .
Centaur may be a comet or asteroid guns.
Observations on 3 June 2013, leveraging okultasi events , where Chariklo across the face of a star that is located far away in space.
When Chariklo crossing , starlight is dimmed , allowing astronomers mengobservasi Chariklo more detail .
Using seven telescopes, astronomers crew to mengobervasi more Chariklo shape and size by measuring the star dimmed when okultasi ever happened .
Braga – Ribas finds a strange pattern of dimming stars . It is suspected that the pattern is caused by the gas released by Chariklo .
However , in the end he knew that was not happening because of the peculiarity of gas , but because of two rings that surround the 250 km diameter object .
” This is very surprising , ” said Braga – Ribas as quoted by National Geographic , Wednesday ( 03/26/2014 ) .
Two ring their own width 7 and 3 yards.
Both are separated as far as 9 miles .
Braga – Ribas and his team named the ring Oiapoque and Chiu , based on the name of a river in the north and the south of Brazil .
There is a ring structure explain the strange phenomenon found in Chariklo 1997 to 2008 .
The object dimmed and the signs of the water in the form of ice disappeared.
Braga – Ribas explains, while the ring structure Chariklo are not visible to the human point of view on Earth .
When the ring structure visible from the point of view of people on Earth , then Chariklo will again appear bright and signs of the water will return terobservasi .
