According to a recently published research study in The Astrophysical Journal, a group of astronomers from OSU (Ohio State University) reported that they have discovered the first known planet to resemble Uranus. Specifically, the exoplanet is orbiting an alien star.

It is reportedly a part of a “double-star system’ named OGLE-2008-BLG-092L which is about 25,000 light-years away from Earth. The new planet, discovered by OSU’s Radek Poleski and his colleagues, is said to be four times as massive as Uranus.
