MeGron-A Hot Jupiter Giant

Our Space Odyssey continues with MeGron the closest planet to SoVran.



Discovery Overview

In ancient times the mighty gas giant planet was quite visible in the night sky.

Shamans and astrologers of the ancient world postulated that MeGron was a lost moon and had angered the Gods, doomed to wander the heavens, struggling to reach out to DianToz (as the planet’s orbit brought it closer),only to be pulled away by the angry Gods, as the planet’s orbit turned outward.

Statistics and relationship to other planets

MeGron is A Super Hot Jupiter and is also been known as a Puffy Planet because of its large radius and very low density.  The intense heat from being so close to it’s mother star combined with internal heating within the planet are a major contributor to inflating the atmosphere. The final piece of this mix is the part that the stellar winds play. The planet’s magnetosphere interplays with the stellar wind thus creating an ongoing electrical current that slowly heats up and boost the atmospheric expansion. A view from space will show us quite an original planet, for on a Super Jupiter planet you could very well see a multitude of jets or rings within the surface. These narrow multi-colored bands extend horizontally from the equator reaching far north and south to the magnetic poles, thus, spanning the entire planet.

MeGron is a planet composed primarily of hydrogen and helium and is covered in thick red, brown, yellow and white clouds

Being the closest planet that circles SoVran has transformed MeGron into a super hot gas giant. The intense heat from SoVran combined with internal heating within the planet are not only a major contributor to inflating the atmosphere, but blazing ,continent-wide hurricanes are common worldwide.

MeGron is tidally locked and orbits SoVran in a mere 10 days!
