Caption: Gliese 436 b planet and star, artwork. The planet is at upper right, with its parent star at lower left. At lower right is a montage artwork shows a transit of the planet across its parent star. From Earth, this is seen as a dimming of the star, and is one of the ways in which such planets are detected. Gliese 436 is a red dwarf star, and is around 33 light years from Earth in the constellation Leo.
