Due to their exceptional characteristics, they have arrived across the planet, and we can take a first-hand look at them.
In the field of exoplanets, it is exceptional to see distant planets, as they are mainly recorded using two different methods based on indirect confirmation. Now he has a special opportunity in front of a college student, which he was able to take advantage of (with some luck), to be able to observe a fairly large sample firsthand.
University of Hawaii in her contacts We can read that an exoplanet, about 35 light-years away, was observed as part of a program called COol Companions ON Ultrawide orbiTS (COCONUTS), which, as its name suggests, traverses planets orbiting their very cool stars. This is because it allows the above-mentioned direct observation, with which we not only record the influence of the planets on the star or the passage in front of the star, but also look at what is rarely given to astronomers. The registered version now fits well into the software framework, which is why the observation worked.
Now known as COCONUTS-2b, the exoplanet is massive, six times larger than Jupiter, and orbiting around 6,471 AU from its star — it should be noted that the two most distant probes from us, Voyager, are the farthest from us. 2, about 120-125 CSE away from Earth. Astronomers estimate that the planet will cover a full circle in 1.1 million years, but it’s also very beneficial that the star itself is very cold – although the planet has retained a relatively large amount of heat since its inception, at 161 degrees Celsius, making it the second coolest A sample in the list of directly observed exoplanets.
In the image provided by the university, the planet will appear in a faint red light, they say, with the help of James Webb, we will get more data in this region as well, so that we can better understand the process of planet formation.
