Contains the first definitive planet found by the Kilodegree Extremely Little Telescope. It is 360 ly away in Auriga. The planet is 30% larger than Jupiter and has 50% more mass. The parent star is unusually bright for one with a Hot Jupiter, and can be detected with binoculars. This allowed the planet's atmosphere to be detected during a transit. The planet orbits the larger of two stars in a binary, which is slightly bigger than the Sun.
