First Exoplanet Ever

In this image released by NASA, a dust ring, seen in red, surround the star Fomalhaut, that resides at the center of the image, and not visible to the human eye in this image. The Hubble Telescope discovered the fuzzy image of the planet, known as Fomalhaut b, which is no more that a white speck in the lower right portion of the dust ring that surrounds the star.

So we see the first exoplanet ever (a white speck)… but what is the bigger news? That this Fomalhaut system looks suspiciously like Sauron’s Eye in Mordor…

So uh… yeah… good.
