Exoplanet Directly Photographed

Exoplanet Directly Photographed

An exoplanet about 300 light-years from Earth has been directly photographed by the European Southern Observatory (ESO). Most such alien worlds are discovered only by indirect means. Called HD 95086 b, it's a gas giant about five times the size of Jupiter. In the photo, it's the blue dot, lower left, below the sun it orbits (which was removed from the image to make the planet easier to see). More at Space.com.
