"Using ESO's Very Large Telescope, astronomers made the discovery around the hot-Jupiter planet WASP-19b, a remarkable planet that has about the same mass as Jupiter. WASP-19b is so close to its parent star that it completes an orbit in just 19 hours and its atmosphere is estimated to have a temperature of about 2000 degrees Celsius.
As WASP-19b passes in front of its parent star, some of the starlight passes through the planet's atmosphere and leaves subtle fingerprints in the light that eventually reaches Earth…"

"Using ESO's Very Large Telescope"
