gj 504 b


♈️ ARIES // CoRoT-7b – This exoplanet orbits so closely to its sun that the rocky surface has become molten. The “hell planet” is believed to be covered in oceans of lava with temperatures around 4,500 degrees Fahrenheit.

♉️ TAURUS // J1407-B – This exoplanet is much, much larger than Jupiter or Saturn, and orbits very young sun. It possess rings x200 the size of Saturn’s. The rings span so far out that they even overlap/eclipse its sun, and cause the planet to be extremely dim. It’s accumulated several “moons” as well.

♊️ GEMINI // Kepler-16b – This exoplanet is very unique, being half gas and half ice. Most importantly, it is the first known “circumbinary planet” – a planet that orbits not one, but two suns.

♋️ CANCER // Gliese 581 c – This exoplanet orbits a red dwarf star, so it’s sky is crimson. It is very similar to Earth, but it’s tidally locked; meaning one side is always facing the sun while the other is in constant darkness, you’d immediately burn or freeze to death. But the vertical strip of surface directly between had been theorized to sustain life and hold water.

♌️ LEO // 55 Cancri e – This exoplanet is a super hot, super-Earth. When first discovered, this planet was believed to be made mostly of diamond, due to the high carbon-to-oxygen ratio of its sun and its own atmospheric pressure and temperature.

♍️ VIRGO // HD 189733 b – This exoplanet is a huge, gas planet. Astronomers have said that is looks like a big, blue marble, and have theorized that the blue color is likely due to the fact that it is constantly raining shards of molten glass.

♎️ LIBRA // GJ 504 b – This exoplanet is a bigger than Jupiter, yet has the lowest mass of any discovered so far. It is a world that is still glowing from the heat of its formation in a way that makes it dark cherry blossom or magenta color, giving it the nickname “the pink planet”.

♏️ SCORPIO // TrES 2b – This exoplanet is extremely hot, and darker than the blackest coal; reflecting less than 1% of any and all light that falls on it. It is the darkest planet ever discovered and the exact reason is still a mystery to scientists.

♐️ SAGITTARIUS // WASP-17b – This exoplanet is the second largest discovered so far, yet it weighs in at half the mass of Jupiter. This makes it the “puffiest planet”. It is also the only known planet known to always orbit in retrograde (opposite its host star), and it’s discovery challenged the traditional planetary formation theory.

♑️ CAPRICORN // Gliese 436b – This exoplanets immense gravity is strong enough to compress the trace amounts of water vapor in its atmosphere, so its core is made of ice. However, it’s so close to the sun that the exterior is perpetually on fire. It stays frozen from its own gravitational pressure (and spite).

♒️ AQUARIUS // HD 188753 Ab – This exoplanet is located within a tristar-system; a solar system that has three suns. If you were standing on this planet, you would cast 3 shadows, and be able to see witness a marvelous, psychedelic triple sunset.

♓️ PISCES // GJ 1214 b – This exoplanet is also known as “the water world”. The interior/core is comprised primarily of water, surrounded by more water, then covered by a thick layer of gases. Estimated proportions of the total mass are 25% rock and 75% water.
