We present the first microlensing candidate for a free-floating exoplanet–exomoon system, MOA-2011-BLG-262, with a primary lens mass of Mhost ∼ 4 Jupiter masses hosting a sub-Earth mass moon. The argument for an exomoon hinges on the system being relatively close to the Sun. The data constrain the product MLπrel where ML is the lens system mass and πrel is the lens–source relative parallax. If the lens system is nearby (large πrel), then ML is small (a few Jupiter masses) and the companion is a…
