NotesA gas giant with a little less than half the mass of Jupiter, Buru pursues a very close orbit around its parent star Kalausi, taking just three days to complete an orbit of the star. There are indications that Buru shares its system with another much more massive gas giant, HD 83443 c, that follows a more distant and highly eccentric orbit of Kalausi.
