Astronomers have made the first-ever observations of a circumplanetary disk of gas and dust, believed to lead to the formation of "an entire system of moons", around a planet 370 light-years away from Earth. The planet, PDS 70 c, was first revealed last month in visible light images. Astronomers estimate this planet is approximately 1-10 times the mass of Jupiter.
