K2-283 is a star with 0.89 times the mass of the Sun, and 0.82 times its radius. It is located 1331.50 light years away from the solar system.
K2-283 is known to have 1 exoplanets in orbit around it.
K2-283 b was discovered by the K2 observatory using the transit method. Its semi-major axis is 0.03 astronomical units, as compared to Earth's which is 1 astronomical unit. It takes 1.92 Earth days to complete an orbit around its host star, K2-283.
The mass of K2-283 b is 19.72 times the mass of Earth. The radius of K2-283 b is 3.52 that of Earth. At more than 10 Earth masses, K2-283 b 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.
