Gliese 436 b /ˈɡliːzə/ (sometimes called GJ 436 b[7]) is a Neptune-sized exoplanet orbiting the red dwarf Gliese 436.[8] It was the first hot Neptune discovered with certainty (in 2007) and was among the smallest known transiting planets in mass and radius, until the much smaller Kepler exoplanet discoveries started coming in by 2010.


In December 2013, NASA reported that clouds may have been detected in the atmosphere of GJ 436 b.[9][10][11][12]
