Fun Fact

In 2021, a new exoplanet was discovered that may have water clouds. Even though this planet is eight times closer to its star than the Earth is to the Sun (making 1 year on this planet the equivalent of 24 Earth days!), its temperature is similar to that of Earth, thanks to its cooler and less bright host star. The cooler the planet, the more likely it is to have clouds in its atmosphere.
