Subject Strange Blue World: Alien Planet's True Color Revealed, a First
Poster Handle Anonymous Coward
Post Content
Call it the deep blue dot. For the first time, scientists have seen the visible color of a distant alien world. The exoplanet called HD 189733b is 63 light-years from Earth and a "deep cobalt blue," with raging storms of glass rain and super-fast winds, scientists say.

The alien planet's blue color was pinned down using observations from the Hubble Space Telescope. Although the planet might be the same color as Earth from space, scientists think that HD 189733b is a "hot Jupiter" a gas giant planet that orbits very close to its star. It takes 2.2 Earth days for the planet to travel fully around its sun.
