The orbits of planets in the Kepler-301 system The orbits of planets in the Kepler-301 system

The Kepler-301 system consists of three known planets, each somewhat larger than Earth, with Kepler-301 c occupying the middle orbit of the three. All of these planets are orbiting extremely closely around their Sun-like star. For comparison, if the planet Mercury were part of this system, it would lie more than three times farther from the star than even the outer planet, Kepler-301 d.
