Exoplanet Kepler-1649c similar to Earth in size and temperature. She gets 15 percent less light, due to the fact that the star is on an orbit which it inhabits, much less the Sun, but it can be water.

Data on a planet discovered by scientists when re-perusing the archive of the Kepler telescope, which operated in orbit from 2009 to 2018 and discovered a few thousand exoplanets. Previous searches by using a computer algorithm incorrectly identified Kepler-1649c, but researchers recognized it as a planet. This was reported on the website of the jet propulsion laboratory of NASA. A heavenly body is located at a distance of 300 light years from Earth.

Kepler-1649c just 1.06 times bigger than our planet. The number of star of light that it receives from its leading stars, is 75% of the quantity of light that the Earth receives from the Sun — this means that the temperature of the exoplanet may be the same as the temperature of our planet. But unlike Earth, Kepler-1649c revolves around a red dwarf, and this type of star known outbreaks of stars that can make the environment of the planet difficult for any potential life. And yet the distance between them is so close that a year on the planet earth is equal to 19.5 days.

Scientists say that this planet is still a lot unknown, such as the atmosphere, and she can affect the temperature of the planet. Dimensions are calculated with a high degree of error because the body is too far away.

“This intriguing, distant world gives us even more hope that the second Ground lies among the stars, waiting for her to find. Data collected by missions such as Kepler, will continue to give amazing discoveries since the scientific community is improving its methods to find potential planets, said Thomas Zurbuchen the assistant administrator of the science mission Directorate of NASA in Washington.
