Exoplanetary Scratchpad

[SysBP Img]

A system containing a 5.1 ME Hot Super-Earth b (which is hot enough to have emissions on its night side) and two other further out Neptunians (c and d and possibly a fourth), and a Kuiper Belt around a very Sun-like star only 28 light years away. All planets would fit inside Venus' orbit and have high eccentricities, especially the outermost one. This is the closest planetary system around a G-type star, which is one of the only very sun-like stars visible to the naked eye. It is the first non-borderline G-class main sequence star found to have a super-Earth.
