Hot Jupiters (very hot)

Post by marasama on 2nd February 2011, 5:53 pm

So just thinking of the semi-dated Sudarsky's classification.

So something like Kepler-7b reaching 1540K, which is within dL dwarf's temp.
- dL brown dwarfs are between 1300-2000K and they exhibit metal hydrides.
- Iron Hydroxide, almost like Iron Hydride (I think) are whitish or hint of green.
- So these gas giants maybe be white with iron pockets of green specs. (speculation)

So something like WASP-33b reaching ~3466K temp, which is roughly around the temperature of into dM dwarf's temp.
- Based on M-type Brown dwarfs, they might have Lithium and glow dark red? (speculation)

Any thoughts?

In this paper, it's found that the CoRoT-1b optical emission is mostly thermal in nature. So it would seem planets cooler than WASP-33 b can glow red.
