Astronomers have discovered the “most extreme planet ever seen.” Its surface temperature is blistering at 3,200 Celsius.

According to tabloid newspaper The Daily Mirror, researchers from the University of Bern dubbed the planet WASP-189b.

It orbits the star HD 133112, which is one of the hottest stars with a planetary system.

Monika Lendl, who led the study, said the planet is located in the constellation Libra 322 light years away.

“WASP-189b is especially interesting because it is a gas giant that orbits very close to its host star,” Lendl added.

According to Lendl, they have estimated the temperature of WASP-189b to be 3,200 degrees Celsius.

“This object is one of the most extreme planets we know so far,” the expert shared in an interview.

Researchers concluded that it has one side that is permanently day time and one that is permanently night.

“Its dayside is so bright that we can even measure the ‘missing’ light when the planet passes behind its star,” said Lendl.

She further explained that the planet absorbs most of the starlight, heating it up and making it shine.”
