Zooming in on Star WASP-76 with Exoplanet WASP-76b | ESO

The ultra-hot giant exoplanet WASP-76b orbits the star WASP-76, located some 390 light-years away in the constellation of Pisces. This video takes us on a journey to this system.

Observations of WASP-76b using the European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope (VLT) suggest it rains iron on this extreme exoplanet.
