Apparently this is not necessarily the first imaged. See  Also why doesn't the article mention failed binary system and captured proto-star as possible formation avenues? 22.214.171.124 (talk) 13:03, 2 July 2010 (UTC)
- On the subject of the position of the planet and the position at which it formed, the two could be different because of a planet being traded by passing stars. The relative velocity of passing stars can be near the escape velocity as is that of Proxima Centauri relative to A & B. Such a trading of planets would be a rare event, but considering the number of possible rare events that could conceivably be seen, the surprising occurrence would be a failure to see any rare events. I do not know where to find references for any of this. --Fartherred (talk) 17:57, 5 July 2010 (UTC)
I remember reading that any planet from the mass of Jupiter all the way up to a brown dwarf star should be about the same size as Jupiter. Is this true here, at least as much as the luminosity can tell us? Wnt (talk) 00:32, 3 July 2010 (UTC)
