Kepler-62f, shown here in an artist's illustration, is a super-Earth size planet in the habitable zone of a star smaller and cooler than the sun. It's located a relatively close 1,200 light-years from Earth in the constellation Lyra.
The smallest of the recently discovered habitable zone planets, Kepler-62f is roughly 40 percent larger than Earth in size, orbiting its host star every 267 days. NASA stresses that although we do know the size of the planet, its mass and composition are unknown.
Much like our solar system, Kepler-62 is home to two habitable zone worlds. The small shining object seen to the right of Kepler-62f is Kepler-62e. Orbiting on the inner edge of the habitable zone, Kepler-62e is roughly 60 percent larger than Earth.
