After many nights of studying the stars, Pembleton made an exciting discovery! He discovered a new exo-planet. Pembleton called his friend, Edgar the Elephant to help verify his discovery. Once it was verified, Pembleton decided to reveal his discovery at the Technion Astronomical Society Workshop. He invited Ducky, Ted and Blizzard, along with his friend Edgar the Elephant.

During the lecture Pembleton explained that he was looking for exo-planets by finding shadows that cross in front of bright stars. Pembleton recorded pictures from his Newtonian telescope on to his computer, so that the finding could be verified by other scientist and also for his super cool presentation.

Pembleton’s lecture was a huge hit at the workshop. Now all he has to do is decide on a name for the planet. Maybe it will be… Pembletron… Blizzardonious… Tedzoni… or Duckytopia…What do you think? Leave a comment!

“My package has already arrived?” Pembleton asked. He had ordered a special telescope, a Newtonian telescope to be exact.

“What is your telescope for?” Ducky asked.

“I need it to study exo-planets.” Pembleton said matter of factly.

“Exo-whato?” Ted and Blizzard asked scratching their heads.

“I didn’t know there were planets shaped like the letter ‘X’.” Ducky said.

“No, no, no. Exo-planets are planets outside of our solar system, which means they do not rotate around the Sun. They rotate around other stars” Pembleton explained. “Just wait for tonight. I’ll show you what I mean.”
