Kepler-16, also known as KOI-1611, is a binary star system consisting of a K-type main sequence star and a red dwarf about 245.43 light-years away in the constellation Cygnus. Both stars are orbited by a Saturn-sized planet within their (optimistic) habitable zone. It is the first circumbinary exoplanet that the Kepler Space Telescope has discovered, which was later dubbed as "Tatooine" in various popular science articles in 2011

NOTE: A fictional Earth-like moon around Kepler-16 b is included to visualize the planet's location in the system's optimistic habitable zone
