Researchers discover hottest giant exoplanet ever observed

Researchers have discovered an incredibly hot planet orbiting a blue star approximately 650 light-years from Earth. In May 2016, astronomers at the Winer Observatory in Arizona were observing the sky using the Kilodegree Extremely Little Teloscope (KELT), which allows them to look at many stars at once, at a low resolution. They noticed that a star named KELT-9 would dim ... Read More »
