that's awesome! hopefully it is a planet, and not just a background image.
with all the exoplanets that have been discvered being several times the mass of jupiter i would have thought it would put an end to the thought of
jupiter being a failed star.
but what could be interesting is, that such a large body still has to put out a ton of radiation. far more than jupiter at least. if we had a better
telescope, it would be amazing to find earth, or even jupiter sized, moons orbiting it.
