Exoplanetary Scratchpad

Orange dwarf 1000 ly away in Lyra with furthest out transiting planet (1.2 AU, 704 days). The first one found beyond the snow line. It is slightly larger than Uranus, but its mass is unknown. Because the second transit was nearly identical to the first, the normal third transit needed to confirm a planet was not deemed necessary.
