Nature Astronomy published these findings on October 25, 2021. ADVERTISEMENT Astronomers based their latest discovery on transits, where a planet passes in front of a star and blocks a portion of its light.

This event results in a distinctive dip in the host star’s brightness, uncovering the exoplanet’s location. Previously, astronomers have used both ground and space-based telescopes to locate thousands of exoplanets.

Telescopes such as those on NASA’s Kepler and TESS missions have found exoplanets by searching for transits, electromagnetic radiation visible to the human eye.The bright X-rays take up a small surface area, so a planet passing in front of it could easily block most of the light.
