News about WASP-103b - a very special planet - CNN Jan 12
"...astronomers have found a giant exoplanet that looks more like a football or rugby ball than a sphere. ...WASP-103b is located about 1,225 light-years from Earth in the Hercules constellation and is almost twice the size of Jupiter.
The strange world is also 50 times closer to its star than Earth is to the sun. It completes one full orbit around its star, WASP-103, in just under one Earth day. With its scale and short orbit, this gas giant is categorized a "hot Jupiter" planet."
Some people are saying it is "potato shaped." Pfff. No way.
