Exoplanetary Scratchpad

[SysBP Img]

Contains a transiting Hot Saturn 80 parsecs away. The planet is about the same mass as Saturn (0.24 MJ) and 79% as massive as Jupiter. This is the smallest planet found so far by the WASP survey and the exoplanet most similar in mass and radius to Saturn. It orbits an Orange Dwarf, so is relatively cool for a Hot Jupiter. There are some indications that it also has an abundance of Carbon Monoxide, much like GJ 436b.
