Exoplanetary Scratchpad

[SysBP Img]

A two bodied system detected during microtransiting event which are possibly a rogue planet and its exomoon. This would be the first time an exomoon was detected, though it may never be confirmed. In 2011, a microtransiting event (brightening) was detected, followed by a smaller one an hour later. It could be a rogue 4-Jupiter planet and its half-Earth mass moon located 1800ly away. Alternatively, it could be a much further very small star or brown dwarf orbited by a Neptune mass planet.
