Massive, Scorching-hot Alien Planet Has Yellow Skies

The gas-giant exoplanet, which lies around 780 light-years from Earth, orbits very near its bright host star, finishing one orbit each 3.7 Earth days. That vicinity makes WASP-79b burning hot, with a normal temperature around 3,000 degrees Fahrenheit (1,650 degrees Celsius), NASA authorities said.

All that warmth puffs up WASP-79b considerably, making it one of the biggest outsider universes at any point watched. In spite of the fact that WASP-79b is only 85% as enormous as Jupiter, it’s 1.7 times more extensive than our close planetary system’s greatest planet.

At that point, there’s the outsider world’s air, which specialists have now examined in impressive detail. Iron rain likely falls through WASP-79b’s skies, which presumably sport an outsider yellowish shade, an ongoing report reports.

The researchers behind the new research contemplated WASP-79b’s air utilizing NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope and the Magellan Consortium’s Magellan II Telescope in Chile. Rayleigh dissipation clarifies why Earth’s sky is blue: This shade of light has an extremely short frequency and in this manner ricochets around much more than different hues do. It’s indistinct why this marvel may not be happening on WASP-79b, the study team said.
