Caption: Extrasolar planets orbiting HR 4796A. Artwork of two hypothetical extrasolar planets (lower right, and left of middle) orbiting the star HR 4796A (far left). Between the two planet lies a dust ring that is 120 billion kilometres across. The gravitational forces of the two planets create a 'shepherding effect' confining the dust ring to a specific area. HR 4796A is several times more massive than the Sun. It lies 320 light years away in the constellation Libra.
