Planet discovered in another Galaxy

Not content with just searching for Exoplanets in our universe, some scientists decided to look for planets in Messier 31, aka Andromedagalaxy. The planet is an incredible 2.5 Million Light Years away. It was discovered using micro-lensing, using an object closer to Earth as a magnifying glass. The planet is believed to be able six times larger than Jupiter and Jupiter is our largest planet.
