Caption: Gliese 436 b in transit across its star. This montage artwork shows a sequence as the planet passes in front of 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.
