Astronomers have found evidence for a hot and steamy atmosphere on Gliese 1132B, the Earth-like planet that circles a red dwarf star in the southern sky.
The Kepler-80 system’s four outermost planets align every month i.e after every 27 days, a new study suggests.
The two potentially habitable earth like planets both seem to have dense, compact blankets of gas like those around Earth or Venus.
An exoplanet, or extrasolar planet, is a planet that orbits a star other than the Sun. There are nearly 2,000 amazing planets discovered and here are just a few strange ones for you to marvel at.

The planet with three suns, named HD 131399Ab, is four times as massive as Jupiter and orbits twice as far out as Pluto!
It’s rare to discover a newborn baby exoplanet. It’s even rarer to discover one that lives so close to its sun it can race all the way around it in just five days.
Largest Planet found orbiting two Suns: Kepler-1647b is nearly identical to Jupiter in both size and mass. But it is much warmer: Kepler-1647b is in the habitable zone.
This snapshot of an alien exoplanet might be a big first for astronomy, as Exoplanet CVSO 30c orbit its host star in amazing photo.
Gravity from the newborn star appears to be pulling away the outer layers of the Hot Jupiter Exoplanet PTFO8-8695 b.
