Astronomers find 'home from home' - 90 light years away!

Astronomers looking for planetary systems that resemble our own solar
system have found the most similar formation so far. British
astronomers, working with Australian and American colleagues, have
discovered a planet like Jupiter in orbit round a nearby star that is
very like our own Sun.


G8, with a luminosity 0.932 of the Sun. Pretty close!
