View from above the surface of TRAPPIST-1b

The view from the surface of TRAPPIST-1b, the closest planet in the system to the central red dwarf star. This artist’s impression depicts a rocky, cratered landscape aglow with the light of its dim host star. Three other planets are visible in the sky: TRAPPIST-1f, d, and c in order from left to right.

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.
