Re: Habitable Exoplanet Catalog

I might have added any moons from this system to the list:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/47_Ursae_Majoris
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stars_a..._Ursae_Majoris

The star has a gas giant 2-3 times Jupiter mass orbiting its star about where our asteroid belt is in relation to our own sun.

The star there is also slightly brighter than our sun, and with a big gas giant reflecting light, its effective insolation distance might be that of our Mars--thus any Europa type moon will probably have some liquid water.
