First Sunset Outside Our Solar System GlimpsedTraces of a distant extrasolar planet's hazy red sunset have been detected for the first time.
Astronomers pointed the Hubble Space Telescope HD 189733b, a gaseous Jupiter-like world about 63 light-years from Earth, as it passed in front of its parent star to catch a glimpse of the planet's atmosphere. Previous observations have not revealed much about the planet's atmosphere, other than that it has clouds.
