Article in Astronomy Magazine Discusses
December, 2007 Issue of Astronomy Magazine:
This is an interesting article about a planet orbiting a star about 10 light years from Earth. The planet orbits the Epsilon Eridani star which is in the Constellation Eridanus. The planet itself is a gas giant like Jupiter or Saturn, but it lies within the area of the star where liquid water could exist. The star is dimmer than our sun, but is visible to the naked eye. The possibility exists that moons orbiting the planet could harbor life. (These moons have not been discovered, but it is theorized that moons would be a good possibility.)
