Fly-through of the TRAPPIST-1 planetary system

This artist’s impression shows the TRAPPIST-1 system from the most distant planet (TRAPPIST-1h). In the video, the transits of two inner planets can be seen, with the large disc of TRAPPIST-1g transiting last.

The artist’s impression in this video is based on the known physical parameters for the planets and stars seen, and uses a vast database of objects in the Universe.
