Kepler-1647b
Kepler-1647b (sometimes named Kepler-1647(AB)-b) is a circumbinary exoplanet that orbits the binary star system Kepler-1647, 3,700 light-years (1,100 pc) from Earth in the constellation Cygnus. It was announced on June 13, 2016 in San Diego at a meeting of the American Astronomical Society. It was discovered using the transit method, when it caused the dimming of the primary star, and then again of the secondary star blended with the primary star eclipse. The first transit of the planet was identified in 2012, but at the time, the single event was not enough to rule out contamination, or confirm it as a planet. It was discovered by the analysis of the Kepler light-curve, which showed the planet in transit. The exoplanet is a gas giant, similar in size to Jupiter, and has an orbital period of 1107 days. This planet is occupied the 9th horizon from our top 10 largest exoplanets in the Universe.>>>READ MORE
