Scientists have discovered traces of new satellites of the Earth

Thanks to the astronomical research, scientists detect new satellites even in the long-known planets. For example, in July 2018, the gas giant Jupiter was found already and is now their total number is 79 — more than any other planet in the Solar system. Not open satellites can be, even in the Land — it is considered "cloud Kordylevskogo", whose existence is still not proven completely. It seems that researchers from the University of Budapest were able to detect strong evidence of this assumption.

These clouds were first discovered by scientists Kazimierz Kordylewski in 1961. They are located at the points L4 and L5 Language created by gravitational waves of the Earth and moon. Study dust clouds have not been conducted since Kordylevskogo, but in 2018 they resumed. The purpose of the scientists was the discovery of the possibility of their existence in the presence of solar winds, able to destroy them.

To conduct the study, a team of scientists have constructed a mathematical model containing the Sun, Earth, moon, and clouds of dust. She used special equipment from the personal Observatory researcher Judith SLES-Balogh (Judit Slíz-Balogh) and followed the polarization of sunlight passing through Langrage.

Due to frequent cloud nights investigation was delayed for several months. In the end, astronomers were able to detect that the polarization of the rays at the point L5 is 20%. According to them, near the moon are two clouds of dust, but at the moment their age is unknown.

Researchers believe they have found the best way to detect "cloud Kordylevskogo". However, be aware that other telescopes have not previously found evidence of their existence, although the clouds Kordylevskogo interest of many scientists. For example, SETI believes that their study can help .

What do you think, are there Earth other satellites besides the moon? An opinion you can Express in the comments or .
