Two non-transiting Neptunes around Kepler-19

Post by Lazarus on 22nd March 2017, 4:21 am

The existence of Kepler-19c was inferred from transit timing variations of the sub-Neptune planet Kepler-19b, with the orbital period constrained to be less than 160 days and a mass less than 6 times that of Jupiter. This planet has now been characterised as a ~13 Earth-mass planet on a 28.7-day orbit, together with a new ~20 Earth-mass planet on a 63-day orbit.
