KELT-11b is an exoplanet orbiting around the yellow subgiant star KELT-11 about 320 light-years away from Earth. It is an inflated planet, one of the "puffiest planets" known, as a result of its close orbiting distance with its parent star. It has a radius 1.37 times that of Jupiter, but only 19% of its mass. It was discovered in 2016.[1]
