Scientists announced during the American Astronomical Society’s national meeting in Indianapolis this week that they have discovered a hot Saturn-like planet in another solar system 700 light-years away.
An international team of astronomers has made the most detailed examination to date of the atmosphere around a Jupiter-like exoplanet using the Keck Observatory, one of the two largest optical telescopes in the world.
An international team of astronomers have uncovered a clever new way of studying the atmosphere of an exoplanet in more detail.
An international team of astronomers has discovered a fourth giant planet, HR 8799e, outside our solar system.
Astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have confirmed the existence of a baked object that could be called a "cometary planet."
WASHINGTON, July 15 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have confirmed the existence of a baked object that could be called a "cometary planet." The gas giant planet, named HD 209458b, is orbiting so close to its star that its heated atmosphere is escaping into space.
Astronomers have measured a superstorm for the first time in the atmosphere of an exoplanet, the well-studied â€œhot Jupiterâ€ HD209458b.
A picture is worth a thousand words, or so University of California, Berkeley, astronomer Paul Kalas found out when he published a Hubble Space Telescope image of a Jupiter-sized planet orbiting the star Fomalhaut.
A powerful, newly refined image-processing technique may allow astronomers to discover extrasolar planets that are possibly lurking in over a decade's worth of Hubble Space Telescope archival data.
Stephan's Quintet in the constellation Pegasus is a visual grouping of five galaxies which four form the first compact galaxy group ever discovered. The group was discovered by Ã‰douard Stephan in 1877 at Marseilles Observatory and is the most studied of all the compact galaxy groups. NGC 7320, which has extensive H II regions, is the brightest member of the visual grouping and is where active star formation is occurring. Hickson Compact Group 92, which contains four of the five...
