I'll try to keep the forum alive by posting some exoplanet pictures here
, instead of on the Discord.
55 Cancri e has a very close orbit...
Proxima Centauri and planet "b", with aurorae!Note: Sirius and Betelgeuse, which appear very close from Proxima, can be seen at the image center.
Proxima c, recently confirmed
; probably a small gas planet.
TESS with its first planet, Pi Mensae c.
HIP 41378 f, which based on two recent papers
could potentially have a ring system.Added after 5 minutes 24 seconds:
HD 189733 b, with NASA's texture for it.
HD 209458 b, with its evaporating atmosphere defined as a comet tail.Note: I'm not sure if this is realistic. For WASP-12b I've just defined a "puffy" atmosphere.
Of course there has to be a TRAPPIST-1 picture...transit of planet "d", from orbit around "e".
