The Kepler-76 Exoplanetary System
Kepler-76 is a star with 1.2 times the mass of the Sun, and 1.32 times its radius. It is located 2749.07 light years away from the solar system.
Kepler-76 is known to have 1 exoplanets in orbit around it.
Kepler-76 b was discovered by the Kepler observatory using the orbital brightness modulation method. Its discovery was announced in 2013-07. Its semi-major axis is 0.03 astronomical units, as compared to Earth's which is 1 astronomical unit. It takes 1.54 Earth days to complete an orbit around its host star, Kepler-76.
The mass of Kepler-76 b is 638.80 times the mass of Earth. The radius of Kepler-76 b is 15.244 that of Earth. At more than 50 Earth masses, Kepler-76 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.
