Astronomers at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics in Cambridge, Massachusetts, spotted the super dense planet using the HAT Net global network of automated telescopes. The HATNet global network of automated telescopes, scans a large fraction of the Northern Hemisphere sky every night. These astronomers have finally discovered the second planet i.e. HAT-P-2b and were astonished with their discovery about this Planet.

Scientists further came out with more information like its temperature and gravity power. They also compared that with Earth and were really dazed. HAT-P-2b has a temperature ranging from 1000 to 2000°C,gravity 15 times stronger than Earth, and a year that lasts just 5.6 of our days. It is also one of the odd planets in the cosmos.

The unusual gas giant located 440 light-years away in the constellation Hercules, turns out to be the most massive planet found outside our solar system so far. Watch this documentary to know more about the Weirdest Planets.
