Continued radial velocity (RV) monitoring of the nearby M4V red dwarf star GJ 876 with Keck/High Resolution Echelle Spectrograph has revealed the presence of a Uranus-mass fourth planetary companion in the system. The new planet has a mean period of Pe = 126.6 days (over the 12.6-year baseline of the RV observations), and a minimum mass of mesin ie = 12.9 ± 1.7 M⊕. The detection of the new planet has been enabled by significant improvements to our RV data set for GJ 876. The data have been… 

THE LICK–CARNEGIE EXOPLANET SURVEY: GLIESE 687 b—A NEPTUNE-MASS PLANET ORBITING A NEARBY RED DWARF

Precision radial velocities from the Automated Planet Finder (APF) and Keck/HIRES reveal an Msin (i) = 18 ± 2 M⊕ planet orbiting the nearby M3V star GJ 687. This planet has an orbital period P =
