HD 195019
A Sun-like star in the constellation Delphinus around which has been found a three-Jupiter-mass extrasolar planet of the epistellar Jovian type.1 Spectroscopic measurements of the host suggest that it is has a "quiet" chromosphere (an important factor in its suitability to support nearby life) and a metal-content somewhat greater than that of the Sun.
