Ionized calcium indicates even higher temperatures in the atmosphere of ultra-hot jupiter WASP-76 b

New spectroscopic analysis reveals calcium ions in high atmosphere of exoplanet WASP-76 b. According to a new study it could mean even higher temperatures for this already very hot planet. WASP-76 b orbits its star very close and receives so much energy, that temperature in its atmosphere reach up to 2 400 °C. New findings could also mean the exoplanet is loosing its atmosphere, but more data is needed to confirm.
