The distinct blue planet rains glass

Astronomers brought into prominence on Thursday that they had discovered another blue planet a long, long way from Earth which known to have no water world, yet a scorching, not hospitable place where it rains glass inclining towards one side. With the help of the Hubble Space Telescope, scientists from NASA and its European counterpart, ESA, have for the first time resolved the true colour of an exoplanet, celestial bodies which orbit stars other than our own Sun.

The conclusive fact from them was that HD 189733b, a gas giant 63 light-years from our own planet, was a deep cobalt blue, awaking memories of something similar of Earth's colour as observed from space. Furthering with it, a statement revealed that yet that's where the similarities conclude.
