Scientists get images of planet with sun-like star

Scientists have snapped the first images of a planet outside our solar system that is orbiting a star very much like the sun.

In findings announced on Monday, University of Toronto scientists said they used the Gemini North telescope on Mauna Kea in Hawaii to take direct pictures of the planet, which is about the size of Jupiter but with eight times the mass.
