Release date:

HD 100546, also known as KR Muscae, is a young B-type main sequence star about 358.84 light-years away in the constellation Musca. Initial observations point out that it may harbor the largest planet ever discovered, around 6.9 times the size of Jupiter. However, it is more likely the measured radius is not of the planet itself but the debris disk that surrounds it.
