Caption: Beta Pictoris Earth-like planet, artwork. Clouds are seen in the atmosphere, and oceans of water on the surface. A planet's orbit and its size have to fit within a narrow range for it to have a surface temperature suitable for liquid water, and for it to retain an atmosphere. The Beta Pictoris star and planetary system is around 63 light years from Earth, in the constellation Pictor.
