Little Exoplanet

Credit: Spanish Research Council (CSIC)

They found this planet due to its perturbations on a bigger twin planet discovered via microlensing a couple of years ago. It is the smallest planet out of close to 300 exoplanet (Extra solar planet - not in our solar system). The star the planet orbits is in the star constellation LEO.
