As it turned out, these rings are much more of Saturn's rings. A new study by specialists Leydenovskoy Observatory in the Netherlands and the University of Rochester, has shown that the system of rings around the planet J1407b, consists of more than 30 rings, the diameter of each of which is tens of millions of kilometers. In the ring system has flaws, indicating the formation of satellites. eclipse stars lasted for several weeks, but during this period, scientists recorded brightness fluctuations lasting a few tens of minutes. If such a ring would Saturn, they would be visible to the naked eye of the earth during the night. Exoplanet J1407b far exceeds the size of Jupiter and Saturn. The exact mass of the planet is difficult to estimate, but according to scientists, J1407b 10-40 times the mass of Jupiter. Its system of rings about 200 times more of the rings of Saturn. Its diameter is about 120m. Km. Substance present in the rings would be enough for the formation of the planet, comparable to the mass of the Earth. According to astronomers, the rings around the planet will gradually fade and a few million years become companions.
