Targets of Note

  • Kepler-452 b
  • Kepler-468 b, Kepler-470 b, Kepler-628 b, Kepler-840 b, Kepler-854 b, and Kepler-1415 b: These objects were dispositioned as false positives by the Kepler False Positive Working Group (KFPWG) in the Kepler Objects of Interest (KOI) DR 25 Supplemental release. In the absence of a peer-reviewed, published refutation, the objects remain listed as confirmed planets in the Exoplanet Archive.
  • proxima Centauri c: This promising candidate has been noted by a number of publications, but as of yet there is no published, peer-reviewed confirmation of the planetary nature of the signal. We are monitoring the literature and will update the status of proxima Centauri c as soon as it becomes clear.
