HD 145377 b is an extrasolar planet located approximately 180 light-years away[1] in the constellation of Scorpius, orbiting the 8th magnitude G-type main sequence star HD 145377. This planet orbits at a distance of 0.45 astronomical units and takes 104 days to revolve around the star with an eccentricity of 0.307. It has mass of 5.76 times that of Jupiter, however the mass value is only minimum since the inclination of the orbit is not known.

This planet was discovered on October 26, 2008 by Moutou et al. using the HARPS spectrograph on ESO’s 3.6 meter telescope installed at La Silla Observatory in Atacama desert, Chile.[2]
