Caltech scientists have uncovered 18 Jupiter-sized planets in distant solar systems, they wrote in a scientific journal Saturday.
The 18 new planets are orbiting around stars larger than the sun, reported KTLA News.
KESQ Pasadena reported that the scientists used the twin telescopes at the Keck Observatory on the Big Island of Hawaii.
According to KESQ, this discovery is the first such observation to be made from Earth.
Caltech announced that the discovery was published in the December issue of The Astrophysical Journal Supplement, according to KTLA.
