For years there has been speculation that our sun had a ‘sister.’ Could it be that an image recently discovered next the sun is the ‘dark star?’
A spherical object the size of Jupiter was detected and imaged by the Helioviewer.org viewer on June 17 through 18. The image comes into view and is clearly spherical and looks the size of Jupiter which is approximately 86,881 miles in diameter.
The discovery of the object may confirm the theory that our solar system is a binary star system.
According to Wikipedia, “It is estimated that approximately 1/3 of the star systems in the Milky Way are binary or multiple, with the remaining 2/3 consisting of single stars.”
Our sun is a star, and the center of our solar system. It is almost perfectly spherical and consists of hot plasma interwoven with magnetic fields. It’s diameter is 865,374 mi, which is 109 times that of the earth. Its mass is 330,000 times that of Earth, and accounts for about 99.86% of the total mass of the Solar System. Chemically, about three quarters of the Sun’s mass consists of hydrogen, while the rest is mostly helium. The remainder (1.69%, which nonetheless equals 5,628 times the mass of Earth) consists of heavier elements, including oxygen, carbon, neon and iron, among.
The Solar System consists of the Sun and its planetary system of eight planets, their moons, and other non-stellar objects. It formed 4.6 billion years ago from the gravitational collapse of a giant molecular cloud. The vast majority of the system’s mass is in the Sun, with most of the remaining mass contained in Jupiter. The four smaller inner planets, Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars, also called the terrestrial planets, are primarily composed of rock and metal.
If this image is a ‘second sun,’ making ours a binary star system, all the ‘star gazers’ may finally have satisfied their dream of discovering the ‘dark star’ next to the sun.
