New Planets


The bright and very young star HR 8799, about 130 light-years away from Earth, hosts a planetary system that looks like a scaled-up model of our own Solar System. This NACO image shows the star and the middle planet (marked), of which the astronomers were able to tease out the planet’s spectrum from the host star’s much brighter light.
