Light passing through the atmosphere of WASP-19b

Artist impression of the light passing through the atmosphere of the extrasolar planet WASP-19b.

Astronomers detected titanium oxide, together with water and traces of sodium, in the atmosphere of the hot-Jupiter planet WASP-19b. Part of the stellar light is absorbed in the atmosphere by these molecules, while other parts get scattered or go through almost unchanged.
