Submission + - Most Eath-like planet yet found (wikipedia.org)

mcgrew writes: Yesterday, the Keppler telescope found a planet around a G type star (one like ours) in the habitable zone that is only one and a half times larger than Earth. It could easily support life, if it has water and the right atmosphere.

Unfortunately, all of the news reports I've seen pretty much mirror the linked Wikipedia article, none of which say how far the star is or where it is in the night sky.
