The second-coldest imaged exoplanet found to date

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

Astronomers have discovered thousands of exoplanets—planets beyond our solar system—but few have been directly imaged, because they are extremely difficult to see with existing telescopes. A University of Hawaiʻi Institute for Astronomy (IfA) graduate student has beaten the odds and discovered a directly imaged exoplanet, and it's the closest one to Earth ever found, at a distance of only 35 light years.

Holy Sugar on a Shingle that's cool, and not because it’s a cold planet.
