Virginis B was one of the very first confirmed extrasolar planets, discovered in 1996. The parent star, 70 Virginis, is 60 light-yeas away in the constellation Virgo. The exoplanet is 7.5 times the mass of Jupiter and has a 116-day orbit around its host star. In this illustration, the planet is imaged as viewed from the surface of a hypothetical Earth-like moon. The scene is presented as a faux travel poster in art deco style.
