NASA discovers 'blue planet' 63 light-years away, NASA.


Scientists have discovered a blue planet that is orbiting another star 63 light-years away. The planet is called HD 189733b.

NASA announced today that its Hubble Space Telescope has found a true blue planet out in the alien world.

"Astronomers making visible-light observations with NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have deduced the actual color of a planet orbiting another star 63 light-years away," NASA said.

The planet — HD 189733b — is one of the closest exoplanets that can be seen crossing the face of its star. Although earlier observations reported evidence for scattering of blue light on the planet, the latest observation confirmed it, NASA said.

"We saw the light becoming less bright in the blue but not in the green or red. Light was missing in the blue but not in the red when it was hidden," said research team member Frederic Pont. "This means that the object that disappeared was blue."

According to scientists, the planet resembles a "deep blue dot, reminiscent of Earth's color as seen from space," but that's where the comparison ends.
