Astronomers using Hubble Space Telescope data have new observations of a candidate exomoon associated with Kepler-1625b. If confirmed, this exomoon would be quite large, with a mass and radius similar to Neptune. The exoplanet Kepler-1625b is itself quite large, a planet initially estimated to be several Jupiter masses.

Please join Tony Darnell, Carol Christian, Alex Teachey and David Kipping as they discuss these new observations and what they tell us about this new exomoon.
