Giant Planet Discovery?

There might be a giant planet orbiting closely to Vega, the star located on the constellation Lyra. This star is larger and has a faster rotation than our sun, and is relatively close by astronomers standards(around 150 trillion miles). This planet is theorized to be as big as Neptune and would be the second hottest planet discovered! It was discovered by studying over 10 years of data on the star Vega and seeing if they could find any slight "wiggles" in the stars velocity, this would mean that an orbiting planet was nearby. How cool! read more about it below.
