There is any moon outside the Solar system?


                          Astronomers may have found the first moon outside our solar system, a gas behemoth the size of Neptune. A lot of planets exist beyond our solar system, but a moon around one of those worlds has yet to be confirmed. Two Researchers of Columbia University presented their tantalising evidence for a moon. The potential moon will be bigger than Earth and the planet it orbits is as big as mammoth Jupiter. This apparent size pairing of a gaseous moon and planet is 8,000 light-years away. 

         Researchers Alex Teachey and David Kipping evaluated 284 planets outside our solar system that had already been discovered by the NASA's Kepler Space Telescope. Only one planet held promise for hosting a moon, one around the star known as Kepler-1625, which is about the size of our sun but older. Last October, they directed the Hubble Space Telescope at the star in an attempt to verify or rule out the possibility of a moon orbiting as the planet Kepler-1625b
