A number of media have reported our findings, including BBC Sky at Night Magazine.
Using data from NASA's Kepler satellite, we discovered the exoplanet Kepler-410A b. It is larger than earth but smaller than Neptune and orbits around its star in 17.8 days.
The star it orbits is presumed to be part of a double star, and is located 425 light years from Earth.
“The Brits once said that the sun never sets in the British Empire,” Christensen-Dalsgaard adds. “What we say is that a star should never set at Aarhus University.”
It was tweeted about by Belgian prime minister Elio Di Rupo.
