Astronomers say a recent planet discovery may have some interesting characteristics. They've found a deep azure blue planet orbiting a star 63 light years away.

It's the first time they've been able to determine the actual color of a planet outside our solar system. NASA says the planet is a gas giant with a daytime temperature of 2,000 degrees.

Scientists say the planet may also rain liquid glass sideways, amid 4,500 mph winds.
