A planet name Rogue found among the gang of stars

A planet name Rogue found among the gang of stars

A new planet named Rogue has been found roaming free among a gang of young stars about 115 to 160 light years from Earth. It doesn't fulfills the definition of a planet because it doesn't orbits a star.
 
Yet it is between four and seven times the mass of Jupiter. The planet appears to be a young, cold planet in a cluster of about 30 stars moving together called AB Doradus, astronomers report in the December Astronomy & Astrophysics. The free floating planet is the closest to Earth yet discovered.
