View from the planetTRAPPIST-1f

This artist’s animation shows a view of the TRAPPIST-1 system from the fifth planet out, TRAPPIST-1f. Other planets in the system can be seen as they orbit and transit across the ultracool dwarf star at the centre.

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.
