Hot blue world by ** GoSpeed Racer **, on Flickr

This terran type planet orbits a very hot Wolf Rayet star at a distance of 529 AU, or about 5 billion miles. Surface temp averages 342K or 69C (156F). One orbit takes 2104 years. The star is a blistering 39,000K.

Care to live here?

Closer in it gets hotter and brigher. Notice how the moon lights up the side of this planet.

I would imagine a very short lifetime for this world. I wonder what any supernova would do to it? Melt the surface and maybe blast some molten crust off?

After that it would resolidify and forever orbit any black hole that formed in bitter cold darkness.
