Astronomers using NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) have discovered a temperate, Neptune-sized planet orbiting the M-dwarf star TOI-1231.

TOI-1231 is a M3-type star located 90 light-years away in the southern constellation of Vela.

NLTT 24399, L 248-27, and 2MASS J10265947-5228099, the star is about two times smaller and less massive than our Sun.

The newfound planet, designated TOI-1231b, orbits its star once every 24.3 days.

The alien world is 3.65 times the radius of the Earth and about 15.4 times as massive.

Researchers working with data from NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) have discovered the mission’s first circumbinary planet, a world orbiting two stars.

The planet, called TOI 1338b, is around 6.9 times larger than Earth, or between the sizes of Neptune and Saturn. It lies in a system 1,300 light-years away in the constellation Pictor.
