A first-of-its-kind photo showing the birth of a new planet was released.
The newborn planet is taking shape in the Milky Way Galaxy and continues to grow at a fast pace.
Researchers suggest that the celestial object is two to three times larger than Jupiter and is hotter than any planet in the solar system.
A planet-hunting instrument captured the moment as a bright light was surrounded by gas and dust.
The large gas planet has the highest temperature record of any planet in the system, reaching 1,832 degrees Fahrenheit.
