Kepler-69

Kepler-69, G4V, mv=13.7
Kepler-69 is a system made of a Sun-like star (spectral type G4V, 93% of the Sun’s radius and 81% of its mass) surrounded by two super-Earth- or mini-Neptune-type planets. The one closest to the star, Kepler-69 b, has a radius 2.25 times larger than the Earth, and is much hotter than our planet. The second planet, Kepler-69 c, has a radius 70% larger than the Earth and receives about as much light from its star as Venus does from the Sun: it may then be a kind of “super-Venus”.
