The giant planet, 51 Pegasus, bakes under the heat of its parent star. Lightning flashes in its atmosphere and auroral displays shimmer over the polar regions, a possibility if it has a magnetic field. Any moons, such as the captured asteroid in the foreground, would glow red hot from the temperatures of nearly 1800 degrees Fahrenheit.

In this illustration released by NASA, the recently discovered asteroid 2004 MN4's orbit about the Sun is shown in blue. Much of the asteroid's orbit lies within the Earth's orbit, which is the outermost white circle. The positions of the asteroid and the Earth are shown for Thursday, Dec. 23, 2004, when the object was about 14 million km (9 million miles) away from the Earth. The asteroid potentially could impact Earth in 2029, based on a limited number of initial sightings, said Donald Yeomans, manager of the Near Earth Object Program at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena.
