The glow of planets outside our solar system have been spotted in the first direct detections of light emitted by alien worlds.

The two planets were detected in infrared light, an emission of heat that is not visible to the human eye. There are no conventional photographs, but astronomers are ecstatic nonetheless.

The gas giant worlds, each around a different star, were discovered previously by noting the gravitational wobbles they induce in their host stars -- an indirect method. Both are roughly Jupiter-sized and hot, orbiting very close to their stars. Each completes a "year" in less than four days.


we can now see planets beyond our own galaxy...

this is a great advancement...

here is some other info:

Youngest Planet
Oldest Planet
Hottest Planet
Farthest Planet
Earth-Like Planet

ENJOY!!!

Good find, i read this article today on my yahoo page. But i also think it’s a great advancement, and i think this may lead us to find lots and lots of other life.

I'm guessing you mean beyond our solar sytem, not our galaxy?

If I have to, I guess I will. I knew what you meant, but I felt like giving you a hard time anyway bud.

Sorry to disappoint you but "transit method" isn't direct observation.
(it's indirect like redshift method)


Considering direct observations our old, doomed to death, "junk" aka Hubble has done it.

WOAHMYGOD! Really? Jupiter-like, gaseous planets? Never would have guessed...

A whole lot of planets came out last year, that was fun. Especially the Earth one you linked to, that was in July? I don't remember but that was really cool.

*Hopes Astrobiology takes off as a field, possibly considers pursuing a career in said field*
