The darkest planet has been found in the galaxy by the astronomers, which reflects sunlight only 1 percent or less than it, making it basically one huge black sphere or darker than any planet seen up to now. Actually, this planet is darker than any substance present on Earth, even blacker than coal. The gas giant the size of Jupiter is officially named as TrES-2b. Rather than solid, the planet has rocky body similar to Mars or Earth, as said by the astronomers. TrES-2b closely orbits the distant star GSC 03549-02811 and is situated about 750 light-years away from Earth in the direction of Draco, the Dragon constellation.
The planet is truly an alien world as it is significantly less reflective than black acrylic paint, said by the David Kipping of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. NASA's orbiting Kepler spacecraft was used by the scientists to make the observations. The darkest planet orbits at a distance of “only" three million miles from its star, which heats the planet to roughly 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit. The researchers suggest that some light-absorbing chemicals like gaseous titanium oxide or vaporized sodium and potassium that present in the atmosphere of planet could assist to make clear why it is so dark.
