Virtual reality view of the TRAPPIST-1 planetary system

The view from the surface of TRAPPIST-1b, the closest planet in the system to the central ultra cool dwarf star. This artist’s impression depicts a rocky, cratered landscape aglow with the light of its dim host star. Three other planets are visible in the sky: TRAPPIST-1f, d, and c in order from left to right. This version is intended for virtual reality viewers, where the user can control the viewing angle to look in any direction.

The artist’s impression in this video is based on the known physical parameters for the planets and stars seen, and uses a vast database of objects in the Universe.
