The Calar Alto Observatory in Almeria has made a significant discovery: a transiting exo-Venus located 40 light years away.


An international team of researchers combined data from both space and ground-based telescopes to find this exoplanet, which appears to be temperate and nearly Earth-sized, bearing a striking resemblance to Venus.


Closest Detection

This discovery marks the closest detection of an exo-Venus to date using the transit method, observing the periodic mini-eclipses (transits) of its star caused by the planet passing in front of it.


Named Gliese 12 b, the new world boasts a diameter slightly smaller than Earth s, comparable to that of Venus (approximately 12,000 km).


Spectra from instruments like CARMENES have enabled scientists to estimate the planet s mass at around 1.5 times that of Earth, indicating it is a dense, rocky planet.


Similar to Venus

The surface equilibrium temperature of Gliese 12 b is estimated to be around 42°C.


However, the actual temperature will depend on whether the planet has retained an atmosphere and its composition since its formation.


With a dense atmosphere similar to Venus, temperatures could soar to hundreds of degrees, capable of melting lead, much like Venus extreme greenhouse effect.
