The following are lists of extremes among the known
exoplanets. The properties listed here are those for which values are known reliably.
Extremes from Earth's viewpoint [ edit ]
OGLE-2005-BLG-390Lb [1 ]
OGLE-2005-BLG-390L [1 ] 21,500 ± 3,300
An analysis of the lightcurve of the microlensing event
PA-99-N2 suggests the presence of a planet orbiting a star in the Andromeda Galaxy. [2 ]
A controversial microlensing event of lobe A of the double gravitationally lensed
Q0957+561 suggests that there is a planet in the lensing galaxy lying at redshift 0.355 (3.7 Gly). [3 ] [4 ]
Alpha Centauri Bb [5 ]
Alpha Centauri B [5 ] 4.37 light years
With a mass of about 1.1 times the size of Earth, it is very similar in size to Earth.
Star with the brightest apparent magnitude with a planet
Pollux [6 ] Apparent magnitude is 1.14
The evidence of planets around
Vega with an apparent magnitude of 0.03 is strongly suggested by circumstellar disks surrounding it. Currently no planets have been confirmed yet. [7 ]
Largest angular distance separation from its host star
Fomalhaut 14.92731 arc seconds
[8 ] WD 0806-661 b has an angular separation of 130.208333 arc seconds from
WD 0806-661. However, its planetary origin is unknown.
Planetary characteristics [ edit ]
Orbit characteristics [ edit ]
Stellar characteristics [ edit ]
System characteristics [ edit ]
System with most (confirmed) planets
HD 10180 9
The planets are HD 10180b, c, ..., h. This system has 2 unconfirmed planets and more data is needed to confirm their existence.
[35 ] [35 ]
System with most stars
PH1b (Kepler 64b) 4
PH1 has a circumbinary orbit.
