Of course, the center isn't naturally this dark.
Usually, the disk of gas and dust disappears when a star is roughly 10 million years old, they said.
The proto-planetary disc is a "planet factory" filled with gases and dust particles surrounding those young stars.
The planet, dubbed PDS 70b, was detected by an worldwide team using the European Southern Observatory's Very Large Telescope in Chile and its planet-hunting instrument, called SPHERE.
The planet is called PDS 70b and scientists have determined it is a gas giant with mass several times that of Jupiter.
How can the astronomers be sure that their discovery is real?
Scientists know that Miriam Kepler, who heads a team on the project at the Max Planck Institute, says that young planets are made in our galaxy, and they have seen the first signs.
European Parliament votes against controversial copyright law
The other controversial article, number 11, had proposed online platforms pay publishers a fee if they linked to news content. It also would require a filter on any content uploaded to the web that would block any copyrighted content.
Russia, U.S. discuss preparations for Putin-Trump summit in Helsinki
When asked by reporters Saturday whether he would consider recognizing Russia's annexation of Crimea, Trump said that "we'll have to see".
Trump pressed aides on Venezuela invasion, US official says
Washington might indeed have not entirely given up on an idea of an intervention, or at least a military coup in Venezuela. Trump didn't drop it, and the next day made public remarks about a " military option " to remove President Nicolas Maduro.
Because this planet is a gas giant just like Jupiter is, monitoring its growth could reveal more about how quickly Jupiter formed alongside Earth.
Furthermore, in a second study, also published online yesterday in Astronomy & Astrophysics, a separate group of researchers estimated the characteristics of the newborn planet, dubbed PDS 70b.
The mystery of how planets are formed has boggled scientists for centuries, but newly captured photos of a fledgling planet nestled in the rings of a young dwarf star could be about to unlock the secrets of deep space.
Dr. Zoe Leinhardt, a specialist in planetary formation and university computational astrophysicist in Bristol, told the Guardian: "For astronomers, most of the time, it is very rare that we are really able to show a picture".
By continuing to observe the planet using SPHERE and other instruments, the teams hope to both confirm their findings, as well as track the world as it move along its 120-year orbit. They also fetched the tentative details about the temperature of the planet which has been reported somewhere around 1000 degree Celsius. Analysis of this spectrum indicated that its atmosphere is cloudy.
Although the planet looks close to its star in the image, it's 1,864,113,576 miles away. Nearly the distance between Uranus and the Sun.
Directly imaging the planet is a game-changer. Planet baby is most likely still in the process of accumulation. Thomas Henning, director at the Max Planck Institute for Astronomy and leader of the teams, said in a statement.
