Water Vapor Detected On A 'Super Neptune'

The discovery: Water vapor in the atmosphere of planet TOI-674 b.

Astronomers have reported a second, super-sized moon orbiting a Jupiter-sized planet beyond our solar system.

Exomoons represent a crucial missing puzzle piece in our efforts to understand extrasolar planetary systems.

With the help of the CHEOPS space telescope, an international team including researchers from the Universities of Bern and Geneva as well as the National Centre of Competence in Research (NCCR) PlanetS, was able to detect the deformation of an exoplanet for the first time.

Researchers have identified the first signature of a magnetic field surrounding a planet outside of our solar system.

Using observations and archival data from several of NSF's NOIRLab's observatories, together with observations from telescopes around the world and in orbit, astronomers have discovered at least 70 new free-floating planets -- planets that wander through space without a parent star -- in a nearby region of the Milky Way.

Like a dragon of legend, the star EK Draconis has belched out a stream of flaming gas.

Citizen scientists have discovered a new object orbiting a Sun-like star that had been missed by previous searches.

The European Southern Observatory's Very Large Telescope (ESO's VLT) has captured an image of a planet orbiting b Centauri, a two-star system that can be seen with the naked eye.

Discovery Of Sub-Earth Planet GJ 367b

As far as extrasolar planets go, 'GJ 367 b' is a featherweight. With half the mass of Earth, the newly discovered planet is one of the lightest among the nearly 5000 exoplanets known today.

The discovery: A new catalog of exoplanets - planets around other stars - includes 172 previously unknown planet candidates, as well as 18 possible multi-planet systems that also are newly identified.

The hunt for planets beyond our solar system has turned up more than 4,000 far-flung worlds, orbiting stars thousands of light years from Earth.

A new technique developed in part by Planetary Science Institute Senior Scientist Nader Haghighipour has allowed astronomers to quickly detect a transiting circumbinary planet orbiting around two suns, according to a new Astronomical Journal paper on which Haghighipour is an author.

The majority of exoplanets discovered to date have been discovered using the transit method.

An astronomer from NSF's NOIRLab has teamed up with a geologist from California State University, Fresno, to make the first estimates of rock types that exist on planets orbiting nearby stars.

Signs of a planet transiting a star outside of the Milky Way galaxy may have been detected for the first time.

One of the youngest planets ever found around a distant infant star has been discovered by an international team of scientists led by University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa faculty, students, and alumni.

Hot Jupiters - giant gas planets that race around their host stars in extremely tight orbits - have become a little bit less mysterious thanks to a new study combining theoretical modeling with observations by the Hubble Space Telescope.

Young planetary systems generally experience extreme growing pains, as infant bodies collide and fuse to form progressively larger planets.
