New Planets Discovered

dwarf_planet

This is a relatively simple graphic about newly discovered planets just beyond our solar system. The chart gives you an idea about the planet’s size by comparing it others in our solar system.

I did the research for this, using data from the story and other sources, and sketching a presentation that helped graphic artist Karl Gelles with the visual organization. I especially liked using Utah as a reference for the diameter of 2012 VP113.

This ran in print and as an interactive graphic online.
