An artist's concept of the Kepler-62 system showing rocky Kepler-62f in the foreground, the star, Kepler-62a just rising over the edge of the planet and, seen as a small, bright light in the sky, the planet Kepler-62e. Click for multiple resolutions and caption.
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.
