HD 164922 b is an extrasolar planet orbiting around orange dwarf star HD 164922, located in Hercules constellation at a distance of 71.5 light years from Earth. Its inclination is not known, and its true mass may be significantly greater than the radial velocity lower limit of 0.36 Jupiter masses. The planet also has a low eccentricity, unlike most other long period extrasolar planets – 0.05 – about the same as Jupiter and Saturn in the Solar System.[1]
