Scientists have discovered a planet that it is in another constellation, where the planets go around another star that is not the sun, this planet is called Kepler 78B. This scientist where looking for how close can planets be to the sun. This planet doesnt go around its own orbit, so one side of the planet has sun and the other not! Also because it is extremely close to the sun then it is extremely hot!! The ground is boiling lava! Also there is another planet called KOI 1843.03 that it can rotate its own sun in 4. 2 hours. But none of these planets are habitable, so until scientists dont find out a way of let us live in there, then we are not going to be able to celebrate our birthday more often!

Word: Exoplanet: A planet that goes around another star that is not the sun. Obliterated: Is to destroy or remove something.
