View of a planetary system seen from Kepler-62f
04/20/13

 

An artistic view of the system seen from Kepler-62f. The host star is slightly redder than our sun. The smaller exoplanets Kepler-62b (1.3 times Earth’s radius) & Kepler-62c (0.5 times Earth’s radius) are close to the star. Kepler-62d (2 times Earth’s radius) is significantly bigger and closer, Kepler-62e (1.6 times Earth’s radius) & Kepler-62f (1.4 times Earth’s radius) are relatively close to each other and both are sustaining water and rocky surface as suggested by the clouds' color, water, atmosphere and rocks Credit: Danielle Futselaar/SETI Institute
