The observations can help astronomers understand how planets formed and evolved around our own Sun. Images of systems with multiple exoplanets are extremely rare, and — until now — astronomers had never directly observed more than one planet orbiting a star similar to the Sun.
The European Southern Observatory's Very Large Telescope in Chile was used by astronomers to capture the image of the two giant exoplanets orbiting a very young star.
