HD 189733b belongs to a class of gas giants, but differs, for example, Jupiter in that the temperature on this planet reaches 926 degrees C! How did astronomers were able to determine the temperature with an accuracy? Within 33 hours of observation, they have received more than 250,000 measurements of the brightness of the planet. Then, these data have been processed, and received the overall temperature from which to accurately calculate the
