WASP-1 b

  • WASP-1 b is an exoplanet orbiting the star WASP-1, located about 1565.5 light-years (480.0 pc) away from Solar System. Its discovery was publicly announced on 2006.
  • The host star WASP-1 has apparent magnitude of 11.8, with absolute magnitude of 3.4.
  • It is 1.2 times more massive and 1.4 times bigger compared with our Sun. The surface temperature is 6200 with its spectral types of F7V
  • In this planetary system, the extrasolar planet WASP-1 b orbits around the star WASP-1 every 2.5 days with its orbital distance of 0.04 AU ( 5714638.7 km)
