Image of HR 8799 (image) California Institute of Technology Caption In this image of the star HR 8799, most of the light from the star itself has been removed, leaving behind a pattern of light called speckles. The Project 1640 instrument then removes the speckles to reveal the planets previously hidden in the glare.
