An exoplanet with glowing water reveals its nature

Astronomers are now beginning to study the atmospheres of exoplanets, revealing details about their chemical composition and how temperature changes with altitude. One unanswered question has been the role played by hot stratospheres, which act as a kind of lid between different atmosphere layers. Why are stratospheres important and how do glowing molecules reveal their presence?
