Astronomers have a discovery to share, and it's hot — literally.
Researchers named KELT-9b the hottest planet ever found. It can reach over 7,800 degrees Fahrenheit — that's hotter than most stars in our galaxy.
This is because it's so close to the star. It only takes 1.5 Earth days for the planet to orbit once.
Scientists actually found KELT-9b in 2014, but at that time, its abnormal heat threw scientists off, so it was only just recently labeled a planet.
Other astronomers think before the planet vanishes, the star will swell up and swallow the planet whole.
KELT-9b was originally found with the Kilodegree Extremely Little Telescope.
But astronomers hope to continue their studies with some swanky new telescopes — like the James Webb Space Telescope, which should launch next year.
