    Description Gliese 504 b is a massive planet or brown dwarf orbiting a G-type star. Initial estimates of the system's age based on the rotation of the star suggested the object was around 4 Jupiter masses. Other properties of the star indicate that it is likely several billions of years old, resulting in higher mass estimates for the companion. The rapid rotation may have been caused by the star engulfing a hot Jupiter.

    Planet sizes

    The following plot shows the approximate sizes of the planets in this system The Solar System planets are shown as a comparison. Note that unless the radius has been determined through a transit observation, this is only an approximation (see Lissauer et al. 2011b).

    Habitable zone

    The following plot shows the approximate location of the planets in this system with respect to the habitable zone (green) and the size of the star (red). This is only an estimate, using the star's spectral type and mass. Note that if no green band is shown in the plot, then the planet's orbit is far outside the habitable zone. The equations of Selsis, Kasting et al are used to draw the inner and outer boundaries.
