Cancri c is an extrasolar planet in an eccentric orbit around the
Sun-like star 55 Cancri A, making one revolution every 44.34 days.
It is the third known planet in order of distance from its star. 55
Cancri c was discovered on June 13, 2002 and has a mass roughly
half of Saturn. Like the majority of known extrasolar planets, 55
Cancri c was detected by observing changes in its star's radial
velocity. This was achieved by making sensitive measurements of the
Doppler shift of the star's spectrum. At the time of discovery, 55
Cancri A was already known to possess one planet (55 Cancri b),
however there was still a drift in the radial velocity measurements
which was unaccounted-for.
