HD 224693

HD 224693 (also known as HIP 118319) is a yellow subgiant star approximately 320 light-years away[1] in the constellation Cetus.

Planetary system

In 2006, an extrasolar planet was discovered orbiting HD 224693 by the Keck telescope using radial velocity measurements. A preliminary search for transits using photometric data from Fairborn Observatory was inconclusive because data around the predicted time of transit was to sparse to rule out possible transits.[2]
