Kepler-1697 is a star with 0.75 times the mass of the Sun, and 0.77 times its radius. It is located 808.12 light years away from the solar system.
Kepler-1697 is known to have 1 exoplanets in orbit around it.
Kepler-1697 b was discovered by the Kepler observatory, in 2020-08, using the transit method. Its semi-major axis is 0.20 astronomical units, as compared to Earth's which is 1 astronomical unit. The mass of Kepler-1697 b is 2.124 times the mass of Earth. The radius of Kepler-1697 b is 1.260 that of Earth. At 2.124 Earth masses, Kepler-1697 b is a so called Super Earth. Super Earths could be terrestrial worlds like Earth, but they could also be ocean worlds or terrestrial worlds wrapped in a substantial atmosphere, in which case some refer to them as Mini Neptunes. No Super Earths are known to exist in our solar system, but if it exists, the so-called Planet Nine could very well be a super Earth, as it is hypothesized to have a mass between five and ten Earth masses.
