Nearest Planet Beyond Solar System Might Be Photogenic

Nearest Planet Beyond Solar System Might Be Photogenic: "Astronomers think enough starlight might be reflected off the planet when it makes its nearest approach to Epsilon Eridani in 2007 for Hubble and other telescopes to image it. The Hubble observations also revealed that the planet orbits Epsilon Eridani on the same plane as the star's disk of gas and dust. The finding marks the first time that the two objects have been observed at the same inclination around the same star and supports the theory that planets form from such disks."
