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 ]
Planetary characteristics [ edit ]
Orbit characteristics [ edit ]
GU Piscium b GU Piscium
Shortest orbital period
Kepler-70 [20 ]
0.24 days (5.8 hours) Star is a
post-red-giant with another close-period planet, Kepler-70c [21 ]
HD 20782 b [22 ]
HD 20782 [22 ] eccentricity of 0.97±0.01
HD 80606 b has an orbital eccentricity of 0.9349,
previously held record [23 ]
Least eccentric orbit
HD 209458 b
HD 209458 eccentricity of 0.001
Largest orbit around a single star
[24 ] [25 ]
HD 106906 b [24 ]
HD 106906 [24 ] ~650 AU
Kepler-70 0.006 AU
Smallest orbit around binary star
Kepler-47AB ≃0.3 AU
Smallest ratio of
semi-major axis of a planet orbit to binary star orbit
Kepler-16AB 3.14 ± 0.01
Largest orbit around binary star
DT Virginis c
DT Virginis 1168 AU
Star system is also known as Ross 458 AB. The planet was eventually confirmed to be below deuterium burning limit but its formation origin is unknown.
Largest orbit around a single star in a multiple star system
Fomalhaut 115 AU
The second stellar component of the system,
TW Piscis Austrini, has a semi-major axis of 57,000 AU from Fomalhaut and the third stellar component, LP 876-10 orbits 158,000 AU away from Fomalhaut.
Largest distance between binary stars with a circumbinary planet
FW Tauri AB b
FW Tau AB ≈11 AU
Closest orbit between stars with a planet orbiting one of the stars
OGLE-2013-BLG-0341LB ~12-17 AU
(10 or 14 AU projected distance) [28 ] OGLE-2013-BLG-0341L b's semi-major axis is 0.7 AU.
Smallest semi-major axis difference between planets
Kepler-70b and Kepler-70c [30 ]
Kepler-70 0.0016 AU (about 240000 km)
During closest approach, Kepler-70c would appear 5 times the size of the Moon in Kepler-70b's sky.
Smallest semi-major axis ratio between planets
Kepler-36b and Kepler-36c
Kepler-36b and c have semi-major axes of 0.1153 AU and 0.1283 AU respectively, c is 11% further from star than b .
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.
[37 ] [37 ]
System with most stars
PH1b (Kepler 64b) 4
PH1 has a circumbinary orbit.
