The Kepler-297 Exoplanetary System
Kepler-297 is a star with 0.8299999999999998 times the mass of the Sun, and 0.92 times its radius. It is located 2303.35 light years away from the solar system.
Kepler-297 is known to have 2 exoplanets in orbit around it.
Kepler-297 b was discovered by the Kepler observatory using the transit method. Its discovery was announced in 2014-03. Its semi-major axis is 0.22 astronomical units, as compared to Earth's which is 1 astronomical unit. It takes 38.87 Earth days to complete an orbit around its host star, Kepler-297.
The mass of Kepler-297 b is 12.08 times the mass of Earth. The radius of Kepler-297 b is 2.87 that of Earth. At more than 10 Earth masses, Kepler-297 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.
