update 2: made the resolution much higher! 10,000px X 6,000px, my biggest image yet!
the planet itself is 5,000px across!
file type as png for even more quality! added some background stars using the celestia. their positions relative to the system are fairly accurate.
update: added a contrast layer to the image and now it looks so much better!
also added a second moon. gave the planet a little tilt! fixed a few defects in the planets ocean layer. removed some stars and made the stars smaller! added some text.
here, i've made the exoplanet kepler-22b in my depiction of it!
now for its stats: constellation:
Cygnus star name:
Kepler-22 star type:
G type, main sequence system name:
Kepler-22 distance from earth:
620 ly planet name:
super-earth sub class:
ocean world size:
2.5 earths gravity:
2.0-2.5 earth gravity atm. comp.:
nitrogen, oxygen, water vapour, other gases, (probably high in carbon dioxide, hydrogen) atm type:
dense, very cloudy temp:
2 hypothical/ possibly 2-4 orbit:
eccentric orbital distance:
0.85 au year:
290 earth days place in system:
inner edge of habitable zone-they say it is a super earth, ocean world, 2.5 times the size of earth with 2.5 earth gravity.
-it is located in the kepler-22 system, and orbits just on the inside of the stars habital zone, with an eccentric orbit.
so its a moderately hot world, and i've given it an average temperature of 80°C.
now the water won't really boil because of the planets high gravity and dense atmosphere pushing down on the water, but there will be very violent storms and dense clouds, as well as heavy thunder showers. and the heat will generate furoscious winds which i estimate at around 400kmh.
-i estimate chances of life on this world to be around 5-10%.
-because of the planets large gravity, it should have at least 1 or 2 large moons, with a few smaller ones. so i've given the planet two hypothetical moons. the one in the distance is about a little more than 1.5 times the size of our moon. the one in the foreground is about 1/2 the size of of our moon. the moons should also have water, but it may most likely be in the form of clouds in their atmospheres, with a very small chance of there being liquid water on their surface.
this is the very first exoplanet i've ever made, and i assure you that there will be more to come!
so enjoy the image!THIS WORK IS COPYRIGHT ALPHA-ELEMENT
