Iota Horologii b planet. Artwork of the extrasolar planet iota Horologii b (iota Hor b, top left) seen from the surface of a hypothetical volcanically-active moon. The planet orbits the young star iota Horologii (iota Hor, seen setting at centre). The young planetary system is still full of debris, some of which (fiery spots) is colliding with iota Hor b. Iota Hor lies 56 light years away from Earth in the constellation Horologium.
