Four Earth-sized planets have been discovered by an international team of astronomers which reveals that the planets are orbiting near a sun-like star, tau Ceti, which is about 12 light years away from the earth.

Also this sun like star is visible with the naked eye.

These planets have masses as low as 1.7 of the mass of the Earth, making them among the smallest planets ever detected around nearby sun-like stars.

Two, out of the four planets are in the habitable zone around the star where temperatures could be just right for liquid water, and perhaps alien life may be present.

Researchers at the University of Hertfordshire are currently studying the complete phenomenon which may soon verify the existence of the two outer, potentially habitable planets in the system.
