EDMONDS, Wash. (Metro) -- An Edmonds man is one of a handful of people who can say they've actually discovered a new planet. Eric Agol is an astrophysicist at the University of Washington. Komonews.com reports he was looking at data from the Kepler telescope, which monitors 150,000 stars, when he saw a planet that NASA scientists missed. Agol's planet is small and because it's 1200 light years away, cannot be seen in the night sky. Copyright © 2012 Metro Networks Inc.
