Hubble discovers intriguing atmosphere on exoplanet!

Tomorrow's #HubbleHangout  is delving into the wondrous world of exoplanets and their atmospheres.

The +Hubble Space Telescope has detected not only a stratosphere on the exoplanet WASP-33b, but has noticed some interesting properties within it. There's a temperature inversion in its stratosphere, very similar to how our own atmosphere works, as well as Jupiter's and Saturn's!

Join +Tony Darnell, +Carol Christian and me tomorrow at noon Pacific, 3pm Eastern as we host the show with the phenomenal astronomers who used
#Hubbl  to make the observations.
