Bruce Murray Space Image LibraryA Jupiter-like exoplanet A Jupiter-like exoplanet These images show two views of a Jupiter-like exoplanet orbiting the star AF Leporis. Both images were captured using the Very Large Telescope (VLT) in Chile. The central star, which has roughly the same mass, size, and temperature as the Sun, was masked during observations, allowing the telescope to detect the planet. The planet's distance from its star is similar to Saturn's distance from our star. The system has a debris belt with similar characteristics as the Kuiper belt.
