A newly discovered exoplanet is really making astronomers prove their mettle.

GJ 367 is a red dwarf 31 light years away in Vela.

The exoplanet was first spotted in data from NASA’s TESS telescope in 2019.

Period 7.7 hours


Diameter .72 Earth, 9184 kms., 5707 miles.

Mass .55 Earth    3.2841e24 kg.

Irradiation 500 times Earth

Temperature 1,500 Celsius, 2,732 Fahrenheit

Density 8.1 g/cc
86 percent of it could comprise an iron core, with only a sliver of rock left on top.

Is there enough information here to include it in the EG?
