Tiny dwarf planet spotted with its own ring in our solar system

Accepted submission by Anonymous Coward at 2017-10-11 20:56:08 from the Rings Past Uranus dept.

It’s not just Saturn and gas giants such as Uranus which have rings in our solar system – as a tiny dwarf planet has just been spotted with its very own. []

It’s the first dwarf planet beyond Neptune to be spotted with its own ring – and could prove that such rings are not uncommon in the outer solar system.
