Astronomers find first Exoplanet that have already entered our Galaxy! that could explain Planet-X / Niburu?
PhysOrg.com) -- An exoplanet orbiting a star that entered our Milky Way from another galaxy has been detected by a European team of astronomers using the MPG/ESO 2.2-meter telescope at ESO's La Silla Observatory in Chile. The Jupiter-like planet is particularly unusual, as it is orbiting a star nearing the end of its life and could be about to be engulfed by it, giving tantalizing clues about the fate of our own planetary system in the distant future.
Over the last 15 years, astronomers have detected nearly 500 planets orbiting stars in our cosmic neighbourhood, but none outside our Milky Way has been confirmed. Now, however, a planet with a minimum mass 1.25 times that of Jupiter has been discovered orbiting a star of extragalactic origin, even though the star now finds itself within our own galaxy. It is part of the so-called Helmi stream a group of stars that originally belonged to a dwarf galaxy that was devoured by our galaxy, the Milky Way, in an act of galactic cannibalism about six to nine billion years ago. The results are published today in Science Express.

When it enters our solar system then maybe I'll hollar a 'yikes'.

The Milky Way is so vast though, and whilst our solar system - as gigantic as it is to us mere mortals - is but a mere dot on one of the arms of the Milky Way.

Definitely interesting news. But I don't think this is the doom that many folk may be anticipating!

Our galaxy is not the Milky Way. Ours is the Sagittarius dwarf galaxy, it was cannibalized by the milky way... it's the reason we can actually SEE the galactic center. So this planet that they discovered was from our original home.
