HD 86226 is a star with 1.02 times the mass of the Sun, and 1.05 times its radius. It is located 149.00 light years away from the solar system and is estimated to be 4.6 billion years old, as compared to the Sun which is roughly 4.6 billion years old.
HD 86226 is known to have 2 exoplanets in orbit around it.
HD 86226 b was discovered by the Las Campanas Observatory observatory, in 2010-03, using the radial velocity method. Its semi-major axis is 2.73 astronomical units, as compared to Earth's which is 1 astronomical unit. The mass of HD 86226 b is 143.100 times the mass of Earth. The radius of HD 86226 b is 14.300 that of Earth. At more than 50 Earth masses, HD 86226 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.
HD 86226 c was discovered by the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) observatory, in 2020-07, using the transit method. Its semi-major axis is 0.05 astronomical units, as compared to Earth's which is 1 astronomical unit. The mass of HD 86226 c is 7.254 times the mass of Earth. The radius of HD 86226 c is 2.160 that of Earth. At more than 10 Earth masses, HD 86226 c is an ice giant, a planet that is made up mostly of volatiles like water, amonia and methane, and enveloped by a dense hydrogen and helium atmosphere, much like Uranus and Neptune in our solar system.
