The Gloas Collection

Gloas (which means 'to shine')


Cruinlagh is the UK’s designated exoplanet originally named WASP-13b. It is a large, gaseous planet, found in the Lynx constellation. It is about a third of the mass of Jupiter and takes just 4 days to orbit its host star, known as Gloas originally named WASP-13. 


Gloas, is a star in the Lynx constellation. The star is similar, in terms of metallicity and mass, to the Sun, although it is hotter and most likely older. The star was first observed in 1997, according to the SIMBAD database, and was targeted by SuperWASP after the star was observed by one of the SuperWASP telescopes beginning in 2006. Follow-up observations on the star led to the discovery of planet Cruinlagh in 2008; the discovery paper was published in 2009.


Powered by an quartz movement, with a Manx Gaelic collection name. This name is selected as a tribute to Pupils at Cronk y Berry Primary School in Douglas who submitted suggestions in Manx Gaelic in The UK Exoplanet Naming competition to give a new name to WASP-13 exoplanet.
