Keplar 62f

Located about 1,200 light years away in the constellation Lyra, Kepler 62f scored very high on the Earth Similarity Index. It's about 1.4 times bigger than our planet, likely covered in water ice, and shares its solar system with a number of other promising Goldilocks exoplanets. In fact, that's its sister planet Kepler-62e in the background of the picture, which scored even higher on the ESI than 62f!

What to bring: Skates; snow-pants; hockey net.
