NASA's James Webb Space Telescope has detected a sand cloud outside the solar system for the first time. Scientists have detected it on a planet called VHS 1256 b, 40 light-years away from Earth.


use of a state-of-the-art telescope

The researchers used state-of-the-art telescopes to study the movement of the clouds. Scientists say this is an important finding because it shows how clouds on another planet might be different from the water vapor clouds we are familiar with on Earth. The team used Webb's data to identify water, methane, and Carbon monoxide has also been identified.

During this, evidence of carbon dioxide has also been found. This study has been published in The Astrophysical Journal Letters. Professor Sasha Hinckley from the University of Exeter said the planet's low gravity is what makes its sand clouds visible. These persist longer in the atmosphere, making them easier for telescopes to detect. The study said that this planet is young only 150 million years old. This is another reason why its skies are turbulent.
