New warm super-Neptune discovered orbiting Sun-like star TOI 1710

Astronomers discovered a new exoplanet 265 light years away from the Sun. It orbits a yellow Sun-like star in a tight orbit, much closer than planet Mercury orbits the Sun. The exoplanet TOI 1710 b is 28 times heavier than Earth (planet Neptune is 17 times heavier than our planet). Astronomers label it a warm super-Neptune. It is a great candidate for study of the atmospheres of warm Neptunes and their evolution.
