Midnight has been discovered!

Anyone remember the Doctor Who episode “Midnight?” Hell of a story. Very nature-of-man and dark-like. It takes place on the planet Midnight, a celestial body made entirely of diamond. A planet that requires a great deal of care to even be on considering it’s proximity to it’s nearest star and of course the magnification quality of diamond. (Anyone up for an incinerating vacation?) Anywho, looks like a Midnight-esque planet has been found!

The center star is a pulsar. The orbiting object is the planet believed to be made of diamond. The yellow sphere is the size of our own sun, provided as a reference.
