Exoplanetary Scratchpad

[SysBP Img]

Quiet star system 700 ly away in virgo with a hot bloated saturn found by Hubble and Spitzer to have 3 times as much water than Saturn. Orbits 20 times closer than Mercury does and is tidally locked. Thought to have formed further out where more volatiles are present and then migrated in. Has extremely low density, almost as low as the lowest known exoplanet. Has a puffy outer atmosphere that is free of high altitude clouds, enabling studies into its depths.
