Kepler-22b by Alpha-Element Kepler-22b by Alpha-Element
:)!!!!! PLEASE DOWNLOAD FOR BEST QUALITY!!!!!:)

:D!!!!! PLEASE COMMENT IF YOU CAN!!!!!:D

:)!!!!! PLEASE READ DESCRIPTION!!!!!:)

update 2: made the resolution much higher! 10,000px X 6,000px, my biggest image yet!:omfg: the planet itself is 5,000px across!:faint: 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!:faint: 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:

:bulletblue: constellation: Cygnus
:bulletblue: star name: Kepler-22
:bulletblue: star type: G type, main sequence
:bulletblue: system name: Kepler-22
:bulletblue: distance from earth: 620 ly

:bulletblue: planet name: Kepler-22b
:bulletblue: class: super-earth
:bulletblue: sub class: ocean world
:bulletblue: size: 2.5 earths
:bulletblue: gravity: 2.0-2.5 earth gravity
:bulletblue: atm. comp.: nitrogen, oxygen, water vapour, other gases, (probably high in carbon dioxide, hydrogen)
:bulletblue: atm type: dense, very cloudy
:bulletblue: temp: hot
:bulletblue: satellites: 2 hypothical/ possibly 2-4
:bulletblue: orbit: eccentric
:bulletblue: orbital distance: 0.85 au
:bulletblue: year: 290 earth days
:bulletblue: 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 80C.
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!:D so enjoy the image!;)

This is a nice depiction of 22! better the the one NASA came out with.:XD: Isn't it just something to think that with all our concepts of these exoplanets, just what they really look like, even right now, as they drift in their orbit around their host star?
Again, very nice piece.

this planet only has 2 in this picture. we don't know how many moons it actually has.

i'm currently making some tutorials. however, i may not be getting into the details of planet creation any time soon though.

Awesome Picture !
(What?! A planet full of water or liquid and chance of life is %10? Oh the İrony ! :D )

thanks!

it may be a planet covered in a huge deep ocean of water, but due to its size, it may also be a mini neptune and so may not be a life supporting world.

You're welcome !
Well life always found its ways. I heard the moon have a gravity-based tectonic system from Jupiter and that warm up the ice/oceans.
