Formalhaut B

FormalhautI've added the latest amazing Hubblecast video to the Star Viewer Map. The latest video shows the first visible light snapshot of a planet circling another star.

Estimated to be no more than three times Jupiter's mass, the planet, called Fomalhaut B, orbits the bright southern star Fomalhaut, located 25 light-years away in the constellation Piscis Austrinus (the Southern Fish).
