The distant world — known as Fomalhaut b and located a neighborly 25 light-years from Earth — was infamous for being one of the first exoplanets ever discovered in visible light by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope; when astronomers first caught sight of it in 2004 and 2006, the planet appeared as a bright, cool dot moving briskly across the sky. 2009 2010 Its host star, Fomalhaut, is an A-type main-sequence star.

The Case of the Disappearing Exoplanet Fomalhaut b was one of the first planets around another star to be directly imaged by telescopes. "Our study, which analyzed all available archival Hubble data on Fomalhaut revealed several characteristics that together paint a picture that the planet-sized object may never have existed in the first place," said AndrÃ¡s GÃ¡spÃ¡r, an assistant astronomer at the uni's Steward Observatory.
