A solar system containing up to seven planets orbiting a sun-like star has been detected 127 light years from Earth.

The planetary system is believed to be the largest ever discovered beyond the sun.

Astronomers have confirmed the presence of five planets and have tantalising evidence of two more.

And it comes as Nasa has said that it plans to make an announcement about an ‘intriguing’ planetary system that it has discovered using the Kepler space telescope.

Kepler looks at the telltale ‘wobble’ as planets pass in front of distant stars and, earlier this year, astronomers announced that it had discovered more than 700 possible planets. The conference is scheduled for 1pm EDT (6pm BST).
