51 Pegasi b

Post by Fahad » Sat Sep 24, 2005 2:11 pm


I'm an astronomical artist (member of the IAAA - International Association of Astronomical Artists) and have seen astronomical art being displayed on the APOD page by people like Marc Garlick and Lynette R. Cook.

So I thought I may present my artwork here and see if it gets accepted. Below is my illustration of 51 Pegasi b, or "Bellerophon". I have based the illustration on known scientific data. For example; as you can see, a faint cometary tail is visible.


All the best,
