To detect this body, the researchers used a technique called "stellar secret". One astronomer Ko Aimatsu installed two telescopes on the island of Miyako, on the island of Okinawa, learning two thousand stars for sixty hours.
When the collected information is reviewed, a star viewed a 1.3-mile wide object. It's the first body of this type and there seems to be more rocks like this stone.
