I'm creating a new John Whatmough's like website and I need representations of gas giants in all sudarsky's classes. I created a new class, Z for Zero, cooler than class I with clear atmosphere dominated by methane clouds. This is for the last, blue planet.

There is a problem, some planets dont fit in the sudarsky classification, but between two classes or in two classes at the same time. For this ones i created intermediate classes, just for the visual effet.

In order in the image:

Class V: Silica clouds
Intermediate class IV-V
Class IV: Sodium haze
Intermediate class III-IV
Class III: Rayleigh scattering
Intermediate class II-III
Class II: ice and water clouds
Intermediate class I-II
Class I: Ammonia cloud (Jupiter/Saturn analog)
Intermediate classe Z-I
Additionnal class Z: methane cloud

I don't ask this to sound like I'm being contentious; are these scientifically plausible renderings. (I like how they look, so I hope the answer is yes.)

It's based off the work of Sudarsky et al who calculated the spectra and appearances of planets based on what chemicals can condense at various temperatures in a Jovian atmosphere.
http://arxiv.org/abs/astro-ph/9910504

It's definitely plausible, but it's outdated. The exoplanet zoo is looking more complicated than the Sudarsky scheme.

Sorry for not understanding your question. Sirius_alpha made a good answer. For me the Sudarsky classification is more a "visual range of temperatures" than a real rendering of extrasolar planets. And I think it work a little only on gaz giants.

A directly imaged planet with M spectral type.

Thanks you, I was working on something like for a very long time, it's'the first time it really speak of both planetary and stallar properties of that kind of object.

Hello.

I made new star for my web site, here is a sample. Please tell me what do you think about it. My wish was bright an luminous stars.

The main sequence from M to B:



T Tauri:


An AM Herculis binary:

I find the render awesome. I do have some questions/comments - Type A & B stars seem very much identical. To my knowledge, B-class should be a lot bigger and more bluer on the "aura" edges. Of course, I could be wrong.

The red dwarf - do red dwarfs really shine that way? I always imagined them a bit redder (maybe the media and artist representations make them too red?)

Yes B stars would be a lot bigger, this isn't on scale. My aura is not corect... but yours neither. A and B stars have no corona (ultra hot gas), only dense solar wind, colder than the surface and I think by far less luminous (even our corona is almost invisible, I added it because a smooth spherical star is ugly)[/quote]

The red dwarf - do red dwarfs really shine that way? I always imagined them a bit redder (maybe the media and artist representations make them too red?)[quote="Baltazar"]
No, red dwarfs are not red, their are yellow to orange. Only the colder class, the so called "ultra-cool" L dwarfs are red. A typical M dwarf is 3000K hot, the temperature of a light bulb (the old ones with wolfram fillament)... And the same color because both are blackbodies.

I am doing new A-B stars with new information. It's awesome but difficult to render correctly. Spoiler: purple spots!

How about RS CVn binaries? (heavy sunspots, strong magnetic fields that thread between both stars)
They tend to be G or K main sequence or subgiant with a similar companion in very close orbit.

Stalker - Thank you for the correction! This actually changes some of the worlds I have made in my fictional universe that are orbiting red dwarfs. Seems they would receive a lot more light and the disk on the sky would be hella lot brighter.
