Epsilon Eridani b planet, artwork. This planet (far left) is a ringed gas giant. One of its moons is in the foreground. This planetary system is around 10 light years from Earth in the constellation Eridanus. The gas giant planet is thought to be orbiting close to the star's habitable zone, so its moons might be able to support life. The moon shown here has been depicted as similar to Titan, the largest moon of Saturn with an atmosphere of nitrogen and liquid hydrocarbons. In the background (across top) is part of the dust ring that surrounds the Epsilon Eridani system.
