A SUPER-EARTH TRANSITING A NAKED-EYE STAR*
We have detected transits of the innermost planet 'e' orbiting 55 Cnc (V = 6.0), based on two weeks of nearly continuous photometric monitoring with the MOST space telescope. The transits occur with
The Very Low Albedo of an Extrasolar Planet: MOST Space-based Photometry of HD 209458
Measuring the albedo of an extrasolar planet provides insight into its atmospheric composition and its global thermal properties, including heat dissipation and weather patterns. Such a measurement
Early-type stars in the core of the young open cluster Westerlund 2 ⋆⋆⋆
Aims. The properties of the early-type stars in the core of the Westerlund 2 cluster are examined in order to establish a link bet ween the cluster and the very massive Wolf-Rayet binary WR 20a as
Differential Rotation of Eridani Detected by MOST
The Microvariability and Oscillations of STars (MOST) photometric satellite observed three rotations of Eri continuously in late 2005. We detected two spots (Δm ~ 0.01) at different latitudes (200,
An Upper Limit on the Albedo of HD 209458b: Direct Imaging Photometry with the MOST Satellite
We present space-based photometry of the transiting exoplanetary system HD 209458 obtained with the Microvariablity and Oscillations of Stars (MOST) satellite, spanning 14 days and covering 4
Wolf—Rayet binaries in the Magellanic Clouds and implications for massive-star evolution — I. Small Magellanic Cloud
We have carried out an intensive spectroscopic campaign to search for binaries via periodic radial velocity (RV) variations among all the nitrogen-rich WN Wolf‐Rayet (WR) stars in the Small
The γ-ray binary LS 5039: mass and orbit constraints from MOST observations
The results of a coordinated space-based photometric and ground-based spectroscopic observing campaign on the enigmatic γ -ray binary LS 5039 are reported. 16 d of observations from the MOST
MOST Detects g- and p-Modes in the B Supergiant HD 163899 (B2 Ib/II)
The Microvariability and Oscillations of Stars (MOST) satellite observed the B supergiant HD 163899 (B2 Ib/II) for 37 days as a guide star and detected 48 frequencies P2.8 cycles day � 1 with
