Massive Planet Estimated to be 13x Bigger than Jupiter

A gargantuan exoplanet believed to be almost 13 times the mass of Jupiter has been discovered in the Cygnus constellation. Brazilian astronomers concluded the massive object orbits a pair of binary stars, one of which is a white dwarf (a dead low-mass star). "The system is unique," declared the author of the study Leonardo Andrade de Almeida (who also created the above depiction). More at SciTech Daily.
