HD 154857 is a yellow main-sequence star approximately 209 light years[1] away in the constellation of Ara.

Planetary system[edit]

There is one confirmed and one unconfirmed planet discovered in 2004[2] and 2007[3] respectively. The confirmed planet HD 154857 b has mass >1.8 times that of Jupiter. It orbits the star 20% further than Earth-Sun distance, taking 409 days with 47% eccentricity. The previously reported additional object (HD 154857 c) was confirmed to have planetary nature in January 2014.[4]
