Citizen Scientist Finds Ancient White Dwarf Star Encircled by Puzzling Rings

The oldest and coldest known white dwarf (an Earth-sized remnant of a Sun-like star that has died) to feature dust and debris rings was discovered by a volunteer working with the NASA-led “Backyard Worlds: Planet 9” project. Astronomers suspect this could be the first known white dwarf with multiple dust rings.
