New Exoplanet only 33 Light Years Away

New Close Exoplanet - HD-Video

The new exoplanet candidate, called UCF-1.01, is located only 33 light-years away, orbiting the star GJ 436. It is possibly the nearest world to our solar system that is smaller than our home planet. You can see the background stars in their accurate constellations in this video, while we pan out away from Earth. We then move away from our solar system to the GJ 436 solar system, and zoom in to see the new planet, UCF-1.01.
