V830 Tau is a star with 1 times the mass of the Sun, and 2 times its radius. It is located 424.36 light years away from the solar system and is estimated to be 0.002 billion years old, as compared to the Sun which is roughly 4.6 billion years old.
V830 Tau is known to have 1 exoplanets in orbit around it.
V830 Tau b was discovered by the Multiple Observatories observatory, in 2016-06, using the radial velocity method. Its semi-major axis is 0.06 astronomical units, as compared to Earth's which is 1 astronomical unit. The mass of V830 Tau b is 222.600 times the mass of Earth. The radius of V830 Tau b is 14.000 that of Earth. At more than 50 Earth masses, V830 Tau 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.
