distant comets

Stumbled across the article entitled Two Exocomet Populations Around Beta Pictoris over at Sky & Telescope. Another astonishing body of research, to me. Not only are we detecting planets around distant stars but we're tagging comets too. With enough precision to create subgroups. Wow.

The other part of this I find fascinating it that it all further supports that solar systems, with various types of orbiting bodies, are common. Yes.
