A team of 21st-century explorers working on the Hunt for Exomoons with Kepler (HEK) project, based at Harvard University, are searching for exomoons using data from NASA's Kepler mission and the Pleiades supercomputer at the NASA Advanced Supercomputing (NAS) facility at NASA's Ames Research Center.

The discovery of exomoons—moons situated beyond our own solar system—would add to the growing list of celestial objects detected by the Kepler telescope that could potentially harbor life in some form.


Is that picture from Celestia? Because it seems very recognizable. :P Regardless, it's not very often I see them in my Facebook newsfeed (it was posted by Kepler Mission).

i do not think so
look at the pinch at the top of that pink and blue "moon"
i think it is a Photoshop plugin

but it might be, there is a little bit of a "Galaxy" glow on the right side

--------- EDIT-----
it is celestia
from 2006

I tend to agree with John for somewhat different reasons though.
