Horrors of Alien Planets!

This article on DiscoveryNews has a decidedly Halloween themed article about the top 10 horrors of alien exoplanets, including a dust cloud shaped like the Eye of Sauron, ghost planets, atmosphere-stripping stellar winds, and unknown gravitational influences. Astronomers are still trying to understand these incredible planets, and they are only a few examples of how much we have yet to learn of the universe and its vast possibilities. Happy Halloween!

I'm rather disappointed that for the most part the gallery is made up of nothing more than artistic renderings. It is one thing to create an image of something "weird" in the universe. But its something else when you have photographic proof. I realize that I am asking too much of our satellites. But as an artist I sometimes just crave something more "true."
