Kepler-69, also known as 2MASS J19330262+4452080 and KOI-172, is a sun-like star a little dimmer and about a billion years older. The inner planet b is a hot super-Earth. Initially, planet c was thought to be the most Earth-like planet detected, and heralded as the first Super-Earth found in the habitable zone by Kepler around a sunlike star (candidacy announced with a batch of 461 candidates found in 2013). It is now thought to be more likely interior to the habitable zone, a "Super Venus", is 70% larger than Earth, and has a Venus-like period of 242 days.
