        Description This object was found by the Kepler mission. It is very likely that the transit signals are caused by planets because of statistical arguments, the fact that the system seems to host three planets and significant transit timing variations. The outer two planets are near a 7:5 commensurability.edit This object was found by the Kepler mission.

The planet Kepler-65 c is near a 7:5 commensurability with the planet Kepler-65 d.edit This object was found by the Kepler mission. It is very likely that the transit signals are caused by planets because of statistical arguments, the fact that the system seems to host three planets and significant transit timing variations. Only an upper mass limit is known for this system (10 Earth masses). It is near a 7:5 commensurability with the planet Kepler-65 c.edit

        Planet sizes

        The following plot shows the approximate sizes of the planets in this system The Solar System planets are shown as a comparison. Note that unless the radius has been determined through a transit observation, this is only an approximation (see Lissauer et al. 2011b).

        Habitable zone

        The following plot shows the approximate location of the planets in this system with respect to the habitable zone (green) and the size of the star (red). This is only an estimate, using the star's spectral type and mass. Note that if no green band is shown in the plot, then the planet's orbit is far outside the habitable zone. The equations of Selsis, Kasting et al are used to draw the inner and outer boundaries.
