Extrasolar Planets

HD 125612 d (also known as HIP 70123 d) is an extrasolar planet which orbits the G-type main sequence star HD 125612, located approximately 172 light years away in the constellation Virgo. This planet has at least 7.1 times the mass of Jupiter and takes nearly 12 and two-thirds years to orbit the star at a semimajor axis of 5.59 AU. However unlike most other known exoplanets, its eccentricity is not known, but it is typical that its inclination is not known. This planet was detected by HARPS on October 19, 2009, together with 29 other planets.
