MOA 192-b

We know what you're thinking: all of these planets are way too high profile! For your interstellar vacation, you want to go to somewhere chill and out of the way, where nobody would think to find you. Well, then MOA-192 b is for you. It's an icy planet that orbits a dim, brown dwarf— about 6% as bright as the Sun. So no worries about anyone finding you; it's a miracle we've even found this planet.

What to bring: A flashlight; a sled;  some slow jams.
