According to a new study conducted by the researchers in Sweden, an unspecified set of chemical prints spotted in the light of a distant star could be the remains of a digested planet. Astronomers observed in 2017 that a star dubbed Y2235 in the open star cluster Messier 67 had higher levels of certain elements on its surface, that includes carbon, magnesium, oxygen along with elements like cerium, iron, and yttrium.

Upon further inspection, astronomers at the Lund University in Sweden concluded that these were the scattered remains of a planet that is approximately five to six times bigger than Earth. The kind of chemical fingerprints detected in the light from Y2235 can be created by processes that are not related to planetary destruction. They say that the planet must have revolved closer to Y2235 over more than six years, only to be sucked in by the star after several hundred orbits.
