Artist Helena Kauppila Creates Beautiful Paintings of What the Skies of Distant Exoplanets Could Look Like

Artist Helena Kauppila creates beautiful paintings of what the skies of distant exoplanets could look like. Kauppila uses the online tool Endeavour to accurately map where stars would appear in the skies of these alien worlds to lend some scientific accuracy to her otherwise abstract and speculative art.

Kauppila and her gorgeous work were the subject of a recent video by Science Friday.
