with the 700+ new Kepler planets

We are going to have to start to come up with textures for them

I do hope we get some actually decent circumbinaries out of these. :)

and having a few data points like
temp of the planet and if there is any spectral data
but most are looking to be HOT Jupiters in odd orbits
( well they are the easiest to find)

but some of the newer ones are "small Neptunes" with a few near the habitual zone .

so for now without all that much information
i would tend to very lightly banded gas planet textures
textures more like Neptune and Uranus than Jupiter and Saturn
or like Venus's clouds

I have NOT !!! looked so ...
i am guessing that the wikipedia Kepler pages are in the process of being updated
( and for now they should be close to the scientific papers in the information )

Actually, I was referring to the systems themselves, rather than the textures. I neglected to remove the part about new textures from the quote box in my previous post, my bad.

I wonder if it would be possible to do something with the shallow water equations to generate textures? Seems to be a fairly commonly-used technique for modelling exoplanetary atmospheres.

The Gemini Planet Imager: First Light
Macintosh, et al.
4% chance of β Pic b transit in Sep-Dec 2017. Planet has passed max separation and should be visible until March 2016. Should re-emerge Oct 2019.

Bayesian search for low-mass planets around nearby M dwarfs. Estimates for occurrence rate based on global detectability statistics
Tuomi, et al.
Planet candidates around GJ 27.1, GJ 160.2, GJ 180, GJ 229, GJ 422, GJ 682. Confirmation of two planets in GJ 433.

I apologise for my recent absence. I've been rather caught up in things.

Yes, there's a world behind our flashy multicolored pixelscreens...

Thanks for all of these informations (I'm always hungry for info, too ;-) )
Will all of these planets implemented in Celestia.Sci?

Have a good time

I am interested and always curious in the orbits of exoplanets.

As much as I know are these orbits generally elliptical (and not - nearly - concentric like the orbits of the planets in
our own solar system)..

The Kepler-10 planetary system revisited by HARPS-N: A hot rocky world and a solid Neptune-mass planet
Dumusque, et al.

HARPS-N measured the mass of Kepler-10c, and it appears to be pretty high. A Neptune-mass planet dominated by rock?
