HD 104067 b is an extrasolar planet which orbits the K-type main sequence star HD 104067, located approximately 68 light years away in the constellation Corvus. This planet has at least one-sixth the mass of Jupiter and takes over one-sevenths of a year to orbit the star at a semimajor axis of 0.26 AU.[2] This planet was detected by HARPS on October 19, 2009, together with 29 other planets. It is also the first planet to be discovered in this constellation.
