Constellations: The constellation the system is located in, or associated with (Solar System), is mid-raised in the metal background of the design. Stars that are part of the perceived pattern in the constellation are represented by diamonds, while background stars are circles.
Stars: The largest metal circle in each design is to scale with the screen printed planets.
Planets: The order the planets are printed are innermost (top) to outermost (bottom). The metal circles also represent the planets, to a more clear scale, though they are not in any particular order.

This system has some similarities to our own, with a yellow star, rocky inner planet, and gas giant outer planets. This star is a yellow dwarf star located approximately 2,000 light-years from Earth. All planets in this system are larger than Earth, and were considered some of the smallest known exoplanets at the time of discovery. The inner five planets orbits could, comparatively, fit within the space between our Sun and Mercury, with the sixth planet orbit just outside the orbit of Venus.
