HD 181433 c is an extrasolar planet located approximately 87 light years away[2] in the constellation of Pavo, orbiting the star HD 181433. This planet has mass at least 0.64 times that of Jupiter and takes 962 days to orbit the star at an orbital distance of 1.76 AU or 263 Gm. However, the orbit is eccentric, which ranges from 1.27 AU (190 Gm) at periastron to 2.25 AU (337 Gm) at apastron.[4] François Bouchy et al. have published a paper detailing the HD 181433 planetary system in Astronomy and Astrophysics.[6]
