This is what I found on FOXNEWS.COM:
Experts have discovered more than 4,000 exoplanets, but an exomoon has yet to be definitely discovered, despite the 2018 announcement there was something orbiting Kepler-1625b.
But now, researchers believe they may have discovered the presence of six exomoons orbiting six distant planets.
“We can say these six new systems are completely consistent with exomoons: their masses and orbits are such that they would be stable; they would be small enough that their own transits wouldn’t be seen; and they reproduce the pattern of [transit timing variations] seen throughout the entire Kepler data set,” the study’s lead author, Chris Fox, said in a statement.
Researchers don’t have the technology to confirm the discovery with direct imaging, so “that will have to wait for further advancements,” Fox said.
