We have detected the telltale signs of exo-solar planets orbiting stars big and small, dead stars, neutron stars, multiple star systems and even some worlds orbiting no star. But these newly discovered worlds have a truly stellar night sky:
Discovery News — Two newly discovered “hot Jupiters,” which are called Pr0201b and Pr0211b, orbit different sun-like stars in the Beehive Cluster, a collection of about 1,000 stars that swirls around a common center. Each planet likely has a dazzling night sky, one much starrier than we’re used to here on Earth.The Beehive Cluster, which sits about 550 light-years from Earth, is an open cluster — a group of stars born from the same cloud of material at roughly the same time (in the Beehive’s case, about 600 million years ago). So the 1,000 stars there share a similar chemical composition, researchers said.
