Caption: Alien planetary system. Computer artwork of a view across an alien moon towards a Jupiter-sized planet (centre right) transiting across its parent star. Planets like this one have a mass similar to Jupiter but orbit much closer to their sun, meaning they have a much hotter surface temperature and giving them the name Hot Jupiters. The intense heat of the star may help to inflate the atmosphere of the gas giant leading to a planet with a very low density. These are known as puffy planets.
