There is a unique and interesting discovery of exoplanet known as WASP-12b, by the top astronomers which help to reflect less or no light, which is appeared as a pitch black color. On the atmospheric areas of the planet, new lights are dropped on it. It helps in the rejection of previously defined theories about the atmospheric planet i.e. WASP-12b. A proper observations are performed which results in similarly sized exoplanet.
With the use of Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph (STIS) on the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, astronomers made their international team which helps in the measurement of the amount of light reflected by the planet known as exoplanet. It helps in the understanding of atmospheric component. The results obtained from this research are complex in nature. There is a measurement of albedo of WASP-12b which gave the outcome of 0.064. It makes the moon two times more reflective than this exoplanet. Fresh asphalt is darker than the planet which results in low value of the planet. It results in the reflection of moon which is two times darker than this exoplanet known as WASP-12b. It has an albedo of 0.12.
Since the discovery of this planet form the year, 2008, this exoplanet orbits the sun like star near about 1400 light-years away. Later, it is found that one of h best studied exoplanet is WASP-12b. It is also considered as one of the hottest Jupiter among all other planets with a radius of about twice of the original Jupiter with a year equal to one-earth day. It happens as it is very much close to the parent star. There is a stretch of this exoplanet into egg-shaped pattern which leads to the gravitational pull of this star. It also helps in raising or increasing the temperature of the surface by the side of daylight to 2600 degree Celsius.
Low albedo of WASP-12b is due to the high temperature in the atmospheric planet. There are many other Jupiter’s which is more black and hot than the mentioned Jupiter. Lights on these planets are absorbed due to suggested multiple things like alkali metals and clouds. Due to its hotness, their working becomes very slow. Alkali metals are ionized and Clouds are not able to form properly due to the hotness of daylight side of WASP-12b. There can be damage or breaking of hydrogen molecules into atomic hydrogen due to the great amount of hotness. It causes atmosphere just like the atmosphere with a low mass star. It helps in the results of low albedo of the exoplanet.
