      The first successful use of the Doppler effect to find a planet around another star was in Michel Mayor and Didier Queloz of the Geneva Observatory (Figure ) used this technique to find a planet orbiting a star resembling our Sun called 51 Pegasi, about 40 light-years away.(The star can be found in the sky near the great square of Pegasus, the flying horse of Greek .

        The Comet Book app clearly shows when Comets can be viewed and in which direction. The direction and elevation of a Comet can change noticeably in a day due to its fast apparent motion. The moon and a bright planet may be convenient as a guide to find the comet though they have large apparent motion, too. This app determines where Comet is in the sky /5().   These planets have masses as low as Earth mass, making them among the smallest planets ever detected around nearby sun-like stars. Two of them are super-Earths located in the habitable zone of the star, meaning they could support liquid surface water. The planets were detected by observing the wobbles in the movement of tau Ceti.

        When most people think of planets, they think of large spheres of rock (like Earth), ice (like Neptune), or gas (like Jupiter) circling around a bright, warming star. That makes sense. Planets form from the material left over from when a star is born. But this object has everything else you might expect from a planet. There are more planets than stars in our galaxy. The current count orbiting our star: eight.. The inner, rocky planets are Mercury, Venus, Earth and outer planets are gas giants Jupiter and Saturn and ice giants Uranus and Neptune.. Beyond Neptune, a newer class of smaller worlds called dwarf planets reign, including perennial favorite Pluto.

The Pythagoreans, in the 6th and 5th centuries BC appear to have developed their own independent planetary theory, which consisted of the Earth, Sun, Moon, and planets revolving around a "Central Fire" at the center of the Universe.

(There are probably also many more planetary satellites that have not yet been discovered.).The mass contained in these disks is typically 1–10% of the mass of our own Sun, which is more than the mass of all the planets in our solar system put together.

Such observations already demonstrate that a large fraction of stars begin their lives with enough material in the right place to form a planetary system. The hottest part of the sun is its center or the core.
