eps CrB is a star with 1.7 times the mass of the Sun, and 21 times its radius. It is located 227.88 light years away from the solar system and is estimated to be 1.74 billion years old, as compared to the Sun which is roughly 4.6 billion years old.
eps CrB is known to have 1 exoplanets in orbit around it.
eps CrB b was discovered by the Bohyunsan Optical Astronomical Observatory observatory, in 2012-10, using the radial velocity method. Its semi-major axis is 1.30 astronomical units, as compared to Earth's which is 1 astronomical unit. The mass of eps CrB b is 2130.600 times the mass of Earth. The radius of eps CrB b is 12.700 that of Earth. At more than 50 Earth masses, eps CrB b is a gas giant, a planet whose mass is mostly made up of hydrogen and helium, like Jupiter and Saturn in our solar system.
