Veritate is an orange giant star (mag 5.22, 2.2 MS) with a 5 MJ planet (Spe) at 0.83 AU. The planet is one of the closest in planets around an evolved star. Only Clump Giants were known to have planets prior to this. Found by a Japanese team. One of the first 20 exoplanet systems allowed to be given common names by the IAU. The names for the stars are Latin "Veritate" (where there is truth) and "Spe" (where there is hope).
