Fomalhaut: I don't know about you guys, but to me this looks like sombody photographed my cats eye.

The Hubble Space Telescope took the first visible-light snapshot of Fomalhaut b, which orbits a southern star, called Fomalhaut, about 25 light-years away.

NASA said Thursday that the planet is estimated to be less than three times Jupiter's mass, and the star is part of the constellation Piscis Australis, or the "Southern Fish." The finding has been published in the Nov. 14 issue of Science magazine.


  1. Astronomers release "new" and "breathtaking" pictures from thr Hubble to justify it's contined existance,an obsolete satellite that should have been deorbitted years ago.

  2. It actually resembles the eye of Sauron in LOTR, to me.
