The size of this alone is historical. Seems the more we look, the more there is to discover.
Us being alone in the Universe is becoming rarer and rarer.Do any other members find this as spectacular as I and the astronomers do?
The planet, known as 2M1207b, is about five times the size of Jupiter and is orbiting at a distance nearly twice as far as Neptune is from our Sun.

The parent star and planet are more than 200 light-years away near the southern constellation of Hydra.

There has been a lot of competition among astronomers

Please visit the link provided for the complete story.

Hyrda is a constellation we have not had much news on of late.
Pluto has recently been questioned as to whether it is a planet or not.
There is more than we can dare to imagine in the Cosmos.
