The title is a little different from the source article but you get the drift here. Astronomers have found an asteroid with rings.
"Telltale variations in light show that the space rock, known as Chariklo, has two dense, narrow rings. That makes it only the fifth ringed world
known to exist in the solar system, after Saturn, Jupiter, Uranus and Neptune."
"Chariklo, a 160-mile-wide (258-mile-wide) world named after a nymph in Greek mythology, orbits between Saturn and Uranus and is the largest of a
class of objects known as Centaurs. Astronomers calculated that Chariklo would eclipse the star UCAC4 248-108672 on June 3, 2013, as seen from South
America. So they flocked to several southern locations to catch the show."
No conspiracy here. Just thought this is really interesting..
