Caption: 70 Virginis b planet. Computer artwork of the giant extrasolar planet 70 Virginis b seen from the surface of a hypothetical moon. The planet orbits around 70 Virginis, a Sun-like star which lies 59 light years from Earth in the constellation Virgo. The presence of this huge planet, with a mass 6.6 times that of Jupiter, was inferred from the wobble its orbit imparts to the star's motion through space. While it is not known if 70 Virginis b has rings, it is possible.
