SPH10066540 is a star 600 to 3000ly away with a planet discovered independently by British amateur astronomers Chris Holmes and Lee Threapleton using Kepler data on the Planet Hunters web site after the public was solicited to help with the search on the BBC program Stargazing Live. It is thought to be gaseous and Neptune-sized with a 90 day period. The planet is suggested to be named Threapleton Holmes B once scientists have confirmed its authenticity.
