    In the blackest night: 10 NASA images of planets like Earth

    Artist's concept illustrates the hottest planet yet observed in the Universe. The scorching ball of gas, a "hot Jupiter" called HD 149026b, is a sweltering 3,700 degrees Fahrenheit (2,040 degrees Celsius) -- about 3 times hotter than the rocky surface of Venus, the hottest planet in our Solar System.

    HD 149026b is a sweltering 3,700 degrees Fahrenheit (2,040 degrees Celsius), so hot that astronomers believe it is absorbing almost all of the heat from its star, and reflecting very little to no light. Objects that reflect no sunlight are black. Consequently, HD 149026b might be the blackest known planet in the universe, in addition to the hottest.

NASA announced today that it has discovered the first "circumbinary planet"--a planet orbiting two stars. While the planet's officially called Kepler 16b, astronomers are already referring to it as Tatooine, after the home planet of Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars movies, which also had two suns (NASA even invited John Knoll of Industrial Light and Magic, the special-effects company behind Star Wars, to today's announcement).
