James Webb telescope discovered its first exoplanet around star LHS 475

Astronomers led by Kevin Stevenson and Jacob Lustig-Yaeger report discovery of a new exoplanet around red dwarf star LHS 475. First sign of the exoplanet transit signal was found in data from the TESS space telescope. Astronomers then used James Webb to confirm its existence.
