Hardcopy of the cover and article

Albedos of the Solar System

I published an article in the journal Astrobiology and created this cover image for the issue. The article presented a catalog of the albedos, spectra, and colors of 19 Solar System objects for use as a reference in exoplanet observations. The image shows these 19 objects with their albedos overlayed. A partially illuminated exoplanet sits among these showing that our work will someday be used to uncover the mysteries of future observations.
