    Let us take a look at 10 Strange and Mysterious Planets outside the Solar System. The 10 Strange and Mysterious Planets in The Known Universe. Planet Osiris. HD b, located light years away from planet Earth, in the Pegasus constellation, and is the first exoplanet to be discovered in transit of its orbiting star. It is 30% larger.   An illustration shows Teegarden's star and the likely orbits of its newfound planets. Our solar system, which sits about 12 light-years away from the red dwarf system, is shown in an inset for.

      Three newly discovered planets just 73 light-years from our own are helping scientists learn more about the diverse solar systems that populate our galaxy, according to a new study in the journal Nature Astronomy.. Key takeaway: The 3 worlds all reside in the TOI star system, a solar system that is very different from our own. Two of the planets — TOI c and TOI d — are . Astronomers have discovered the first Earth-size planet orbiting a star in the "habitable zone" -- the range of distance from a star where liquid water might pool on the surface of an orbiting planet. The discovery of Keplerf confirms that planets the size of Earth exist in the habitable zone of stars .

      Have you ever thought about what will happen to your solar system’s “perfect harmony” if it loses a planet? For example, the closest planet to the Sun is Mer.   A newfound planet only 22 light-years away represents the best candidate yet for hosting liquid water on its surface, according to a team of astronomers announcing the find on Thursday. The planet.
