Fomalhaut by DeathCl0ck Fomalhaut by DeathCl0ck
The star Fomalhaut – an autumn star for the Northern Hemisphere, sometimes called the Loneliest Star – holds a special place in the search for planets beyond our solar system. Orbiting Fomalhaut is the first extrasolar planet visible to the eye in photographic images. By 2008, when Fomalhaut’s planet became visible, we knew other planets were out there, orbiting distant suns. But, prior to the images of Fomalhaut b, all extrasolar planets, or exoplanets, made their presence known indirectly, for example, in some instances, by their gravitational tugging on their stars.
