Xianthen-18 is a world 3-times the mass of Earth and surrounded by rings of diamond-rich asteroids. It’s four moons create enormous tides in its seas of liquid argon and the atmosphere ignites with light caused by surges of radiation from a nearby pulsar. If this planet could support any form of life, they’d likely be very flat and luminescent from the electrified atmosphere.
