A considered super-Earth is the newly found exoplanet orbits Barnard’s Star, about 6 light-years from Earth in the constellation of Ophiuchus. With an apparent magnitude of +9.5, you won’t be able to see this red dwarf without a telescope. And, it appears brighter in the infrared rather than the visible light spectrum.
The Red Dots community is about finding Earth-like planets and you will find information there to broaden your knowledge about where these objects are likely to exist.
About the Exoplanet GJ 699 b
Based on the evidence to date, this super-Earth is three times the size of Earth in mass and orbits Barnard’s Star every 233 days (as compared to our ~365 days of our Sun). It is expected to be a frozen world with temperatures of about -150ºC. It has been tagged, Barnard’s star b (or GJ 699 b). This makes you think about how unique Earth is in supporting life as we know it.
The Kepler Series of Exoplanets
The Earth-like planets mentioned above are exoplanets, meaning they are outside our Solar System.
The most talked-about exoplanets have been the Kepler series, with Kepler-452b discovered around 2015 as being the closest in similarity to Earth reported thus far.
At the time of writing, there appears no other like Earth, but astronomers keep looking.
