volcanoes on exoplanet gj74

The video shows timelapse photography of the exoplanet gj74 captured by NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope during a period of intense volcanic activity.¹ The planet (aka Aquasol) orbits a star beyond Orion’s Belt, and the underwater eruptions changed it from an ocean world to a mud ball.

OK, maybe that’s ridiculous, and I should leave the leftover eggnog alone, but NASA is definitely responsible for the video frame jumps.

¹The planet is shown in false colors because it’s a false planet.
