Circumplanetary Disk

(disk of dust and gas around a planet)

A Circumplanetary Disk is a disk surrounding a planet analogous to a Circumstellar Disk around a star. These are theorized and plans are to attempt to detect them around Extra-Solar Planets. They are presumed to exist in young systems and presumed to be the source of Moons.
