Ever since our ancestors first gazed into the heavens above, mankind has shared a stark fascination with what wonders await us in the cosmos.

The universe is filled with the weird, the wonderful, and the downright wacky ready to amaze us with their sheer bizarreness; you just need to know where to look. Everything, from planets that eat stars, to those that rain valuable jewels and even those that do not abide by conventional laws of physics can be found out in space. Even the most learned astronomers would be surprised by these.

As of July 2020, 4183 exoplanets (planets that orbit other stars and are not in our solar system) have been found, with an additional 2418 potential exoplanets waiting for confirmation. This, alongside an abundance of rogue planets (planets not orbiting in a star system), leaves us no shortage of potential worlds for us to examine and explore. However, some of these on our list you might want to avoid if given the chance.

These are the 10 most bizarre planets that we know exist in our universe.
