17 Year Timelapse Shows Mysterious Exoplanet’s Orbit

Northwestern University astrophysicist Jason Wang led a project to create the longest timelapse of an exoplanet ever assembled. The video compresses 17 years of real data of an exoplanet orbiting its star down to just 10 seconds -- and that 17 years was only enough for the planet to travel about 75% of a single 23.6-year orbit.
