LHS 3844 is a star with 0.15 times the mass of the Sun, and 0.19 times its radius. It is located 48.55 light years away from the solar system.
LHS 3844 is known to have 1 exoplanets in orbit around it.
LHS 3844 b was discovered by the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) observatory, in 2019-02, using the transit method. Its semi-major axis is 0.01 astronomical units, as compared to Earth's which is 1 astronomical unit. The mass of LHS 3844 b is 2.251 times the mass of Earth. The radius of LHS 3844 b is 1.303 that of Earth. At 2.251 Earth masses, LHS 3844 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.
