The Kepler-282 Exoplanetary System
Kepler-282 is a star with 0.795 times the mass of the Sun, and 0.9 times its radius. It is located 4536.73 light years away from the solar system.
Kepler-282 is known to have 4 exoplanets in orbit around it.
Kepler-282 b was discovered by the Kepler observatory using the transit method. Its discovery was announced in 2014-03. Its semi-major axis is 0.08 astronomical units, as compared to Earth's which is 1 astronomical unit. It takes 9.22 Earth days to complete an orbit around its host star, Kepler-282.
The mass of Kepler-282 b is 0.98 times the mass of Earth. The radius of Kepler-282 b is 1.01 that of Earth. At less than 1.5 Earth masses, Kepler-282 b is a regular terrestrial planet, much like the terrestrial planets we find in our solar system, namely Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars.
