In 1989, David Latham, from the Center for Astrophysics (Massachusetts), and Michel Mayor et al., from the Geneva Observatory, published the discovery of a planet of 11 MJ and a period of 84 days around the star HD 114672.

Careful, the authors prefer to talk about a possible brown dwarf rather than a giant planet .
