NASA’s Spitzer Telescope Finds Distant Planet, Using Microlensing Technique

NASA’s spitzer telescope has found a gas planet as far away as 13,000 light years away, the distant celestial body known in the category, called ‘Ogle-2014-BLG-0124Lb’. The gas giant planet is thought to be half the mass of Jupiter.
