          Description N/A This planet is part of a large data release by the Euopean HARP team.edit A planet candidate in a ~450-day orbit was announced by Rivera et al. (2010). This planet was not confirmed by follow-up studies, and according to Díaz et al. (2016) the signal may be due to incomplete sampling of the stellar activity cycle. This planet candidate was originally designated HD 1461 c, however this designation was subsequently used for the 13.5-day planet. The Extrasolar Planets Encyclopaedia uses the designation HD 1461 d to refer to this planet.edit A planet candidate in a ~5000-day orbit was announced by Rivera et al. (2010). This planet was not confirmed by follow-up studies, and according to Díaz et al. (2016) the signal may be due to incomplete sampling of the stellar activity cycle. This planet candidate was originally designated HD 1461 d, however due to the use of HD 1461 c for the 13.5-day planet, the Extrasolar Planets Encyclopaedia uses the designation HD 1461 e to refer to this planet.edit

          Planet sizes

          The following plot shows the approximate sizes of the planets in this system The Solar System planets are shown as a comparison. Note that unless the radius has been determined through a transit observation, this is only an approximation (see Lissauer et al. 2011b).

          Habitable zone

          The following plot shows the approximate location of the planets in this system with respect to the habitable zone (green) and the size of the star (red). This is only an estimate, using the star's spectral type and mass. Note that if no green band is shown in the plot, then the planet's orbit is far outside the habitable zone. The equations of Selsis, Kasting et al are used to draw the inner and outer boundaries.
