The first alien planet

The first exoplanet we discovered in transit was OGLE-56-b, discovered in 2002. Located 5,000 light-years away from its parent star, this hot Jupiter (because it is a gas giant like Jupiter) is larger than our own Jupiter.

Iron precipitation is thought to occur here at a temperature of 1726 degrees Celsius that creates affinity for the star.

Running fast. Because a year is only 1.2 days which is only 29 hours. The first alien in the artist’s imagination.
