HD 147513 b is an extrasolar planet approximately 42 light years away in the constellation of Scorpius. The planet has at least 21% more massive than Jupiter. But unlike Jupiter, it orbits the star much closer, mean distance being only a third more than Earth's distance from the Sun. The orbit is also eccentric; at periastron, the planet is closer to the star than Earth is from the Sun, whereas at apastron, the planet is further from the star than Mars to the Sun finding itself on the outer edge of the habitable zone.[1][2]
