Image description:

To get enough heat and light for the "life", a planet should orbit the star at 0.5 AU distance in a period of 167 days. On this image we see a cold world with it's special satellite. Can a satellite have a ring system ?


Of course it can !


Take a look at this one on Epsilon Indi system. (If you are good with Newton's laws, you could calculate it for yourself. The result should look similar to this picture.)
