Astronomy:List of largest exoplanets

From HandWiki
Short description: None
Image of the outer dust around the young star HD 100546. The position of HD 100546 b was indicated by an orange dot.

Below is a list of the largest exoplanets so far discovered, in terms of physical size, ordered by radius.


This list of extrasolar objects may and will change over time because of inconsistency between journals, different methods used to examine these objects and the already extremely hard task of discovering exoplanets, or any other large objects for that matter. Then there is the fact that these objects might be brown dwarfs, sub-brown dwarfs, or not exist at all. Because of this, this list only cites the best measurements to date and is prone to change. Remember, these objects are not stars, and are quite small on a universal or even stellar scale.


The sizes are listed in units of Jupiter radii (71,492 km). All planets listed are larger than 1.7 times the size of the largest planet in the Solar System, Jupiter. Some planets that are smaller than 1.7 RJ have been included for the sake of comparison.

Artist's impression of a gas giant planet forming in the disc around the young star HD 100546.jpg HD 100546 b 6.9+2.7−2.9[1]3.0038 (true) Largest exoplanet in the NASA Exoplanet Archive, although because of flux from the planet and the disk that are superimposed, the exact size of this planet cannot be determined and the emitting area has this size, composed of the planet and most likely its disk too, and is not to be mistaken as a single planet radius. Over time, it will shrink to the size of Jupiter. Possessing 60 MJ,[2] it is likely a brown dwarf.
First ever image of a multi-planet system around a Sun-like star.tif TYC 8998-760-1 b 3.0[3] On 22 July 2020, astronomers announced images, for the first-time, of multiple exoplanets orbiting a star, TYC 8998-760-1, nearly identical to the Sun, except for age. TYC 8998-760-1 is only 14 Ma old while the Sun is 4,500 Ma.[4][5]
DH Tauri b 2.6±0.7- 2.7±0.8[6]2.68[7] 14.2 MJ; at its largest, it would be classified as a brown dwarf.[7]

Brown dwarf OTS 44 with disc.jpg OTS 44 2.24[9]–5.55[10] Very likely a brown dwarf[9] or sub-brown dwarf,[10] which it may be the least massive free-floating substellar objects. It is surrounded by a circumstellar disk of dust and particles of rock and ice.
