The Hubble Space Telescope first photographed Fomalhaut b in visible light on November, 2008. Fomalhaut b is 115 AU distant from its star, Fomalhaut, and it is 18 AU inside the dust ring. It was the first exoplanet to be imaged in visible light.

That’s not the photo that Hubble snapped, but it would be cool if it was.
