Caption: This is an artist impression of the star Kepler-410A. The black dot represents the planet Kepler-410A b, as it moves in front of the star, blocking a small part of the star light and thereby allowing it to be indirectly detected. The stellar companion Kepler-410B is about 10,000 times further away from the planet and is not shown on the image.
