Today I learned that Our Solar System Has a Comet-like Tail and Discovered the Blue Color of an Alien Planet

The following two videos are fantastic.

They feature two amazing discoveries in space science and alien planetology.

The first video shows, for the first time ever, that our solar system has a comet-like TAIL. It was caught by Nasa’s Interstellar Boundary Explorer (IBEX) as our solar system was traveling through space. This weird tail is composed of a combination of fast and slow moving particles and could represent ‘our footprint on the galaxy’. I hop, it will help us to better understand the structure of our solar system. (Source)

Well the second video is also of great interest since it presents, again for the first time ever, the true color of an alien planet: a dazzling blue.

alien blue planet detected by hubble telescope

This footage was made by the Hubble Telescope. This deep blue planet name is HD 189733b. It is a gas giant, with violent weather situated 63 light-years away from our blue “Earth” Planet. In order to measure what this planet would look like to our eyes, the astronomers measured how much light was reflected off its surface. (Source)

I feel kind of little after looking at these videos. What about you?
