Scientists have discovered a strange pattern between two of Neptune’s moons.
Researchers say two of Neptune’s innermost moons are orbiting only about 1,150 miles apart but they are able to avoid each other through perfectly timed orbits.
They do this with one of the moons wildly orbiting in a zig-zag pattern, passing twice above, then twice below.
Scientists are calling it a ‘dance of avoidance.’
Researchers noticed the unique path using NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope and they say this is the first time they’ve seen this particular orbit pattern.
