Kepler-1625b is an extrasolar planet (exoplanet) orbiting the yellow star Kepler-1625 about 4,000 light-years away. It is a large gas giant, between 5.9 and 11.67 times the size of Earth and orbits every 287.4 days. This places it within or near the system's habitable zone, depending on the exact size of the star. In 2017, evidence for a Neptune-sized exomoon orbiting at a distance of 0.0023 AU was announced.
