Most Eccentric Planet Ever Is Exoplanet HD 20782

Scientists have found an extrasolar planet 117 light-years away from Earth, which they believe is the most eccentric planet observed in the universe so far.
The team led by Stephen Kane from San Francisco State University claimed that they detected some signal coming from the reflected light of the planet named HD 20782.
They believe that the exoplanet has similar mass to that of our Solar system’s Jupiter, but it moves differently like a comet around its host star.
They will use HD 20782 to study how such planets respond to its host star with respect to its eccentricity.
