    The monsters are multiplying. Just months after astronomers announced hints of a giant “Planet X” lurking beyond Pluto, a team in Spain says there may actually be two supersized planets hiding in the outer reaches of our solar system.

    HD 149026 b is one of the hottest and densest planets ever found. The surface is more than 2,000 °C — about three times hotter than the surface of Venus, the hottest planet in our Solar System. It is so hot that scientists think it absorbs almost all of the heat from its star, and reflects almost no light. The scorching ball is smaller in diameter than Saturn but has a large core that weighs 70 to 90 times the mass of the entire Earth. Its total mass is about 114 times Earth's.

"Unlike Uranus and Ceres, Neptune was not discovered by accident. It was proposed that a planet beyond Uranus could account for irregularities in Uranus' orbit. Independently, two astronomers, John Couch Adams in England and Urbain-Jean-Joseph Le Verrier in France, calculated the position of this yet unknown planet." - Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum

Key Planet: Venus Venus is the planet of love and desire. She is in charge of romance and beauty. But Venus isn't only about physical love; she's also symbolic of the ideal love. When we see a beautiful painting or other work or art, Venus is present. She is the beauty of a rose as much as she is the attraction we have to someone we love.
