Plant Hidden in Eleven Year Old Hubble Picture

    A new way to process images, reveals an big extra-solar planet [HR 8799b], that apparently had been hiding in an 11-year-old Hubble picture.  How about that!?! They think they have found some 100 more unidentifiable objects, some 77x's the earth and sun distance from here.  Great!  Or is it?  This possibly opens up new field of research and study.  More importantly though, what is to be gained from this new found information?
    Has anybody seen this?  Something, I'd like to know, is what happened to naming planets, using Roman Mythology?

    Your title misspelling is misleading.. I would be more interested in NASA finding a plant in a Hubble picture then a planet.. Ah well.. maybe someday =P

      Well, I reread the darn thing and I wrote it right once and wrong once.  Maybe next time, I'll slow down my typing.  Thanks for the shout out.

    SORRY FOLKS!

    A PLANET was found.  Not a plant.
