Double System of Planetary Mass Objects (Artist's View)
August 9, 2006
This is an artist's impression of what a twin planemo system might look like. The two objects are still very young and are probably surrounded by a disc of material. For clarity, the image is not to scale to Oph 1622, the system just discovered as the size of the discs and the separation between the two objects would make them very tiny.
