Recently for the first time ever, astronomers have found indirect evidence of a giant planet orbiting a white dwarf star (WDJ0914+1914).The system was found in the Cancer constellation. The planet was not seen directly but evidence of its presence was in the form of a disc of gas (hydrogen, oxygen and sulphur) formed due to its evaporating atmosphere which was detected by the Very Large Telescope of the European Southern Observatory in Chile.
This is the first evidence of an actual planet revolving around a white dwarf star.
