Artist's impression of the Gliese 667C system:This video sequence shows an artist's impression of the view from the exoplanet Gliese 667Cd looking towards the planet's parent star (Gliese 667C). In the background to the right the more distant stars in this triple system (Gliese 667A and Gliese 667B) are visible and to the left in the sky one of the other planets, the newly discovered Gliese 667Ce, can be seen as a crescent. A record-breaking three planets in this system are super-Earths lying in the zone around the star where liquid water could exist, making them possible candidates for the presence of life. This is the first system found with a fully packed habitable zone.Credit:ESO/M. Kornmesser

Artist's impression of the orbits of the planets in the Gliese 667C system: This video shows the orbital motions of the planets around the star Gliese 667C. Three of these planets are super-Earths orbiting in the habitable zone where liquid water may exist. The orbit of the planet Mercury in the Solar System is included for scale. As Gliese 667C is fainter and cooler than the Sun the habitable zone is much closer to the star than in the Solar System.Credit:
