The orbits of planets in the Kepler-97 system The orbits of planets in the Kepler-97 system

Kepler-97 b follows an orbit that carries it extremely close to its star, at a distance of only about eight stellar radii, so that its 'year' lasts less than three days. Its companion within the Kepler-97 system, the gas giant Kepler-97 c, follows a rather more distant orbit (though if it orbited the Sun, even this more distant planet would be considered part of the inner system).
