|Detection method||Transit timing variations|
|Orbital period||> 160 d|
|Mass||< 6 Mj|
The planet was discovered as a result of examinations of data from the previously discovered exoplanet : Kepler-19b. Timing variations in the orbital period of the first planet necessitated gravitational forces to be acting upon the planet, resulting from an additional body in the vicinity, acting to cause a variation of transition of five minutes per orbit.
