On the Use of Empirical Bolometric Corrections for Stars
When making use of tabulations of empirical bolometric corrections for stars (BC V ), a commonly overlooked fact is that while the zero point is arbitrary, the bolometric magnitude of the Sun (MExpand

Detection of Thermal Emission from an Extrasolar Planet
We present Spitzer Space Telescope infrared photometric time series of the transiting extrasolar planet system TrES-1. The data span a predicted time of secondary eclipse, corresponding to theExpand

HD 80606 b, a planet on an extremely elongated orbit ?
We report the detection of a planetary companion orbiting the solar-type star HD 80606, the brighter component of a wide binary with a projected separation of about 2000 AU. Using high-signalExpand

TrES-1: The Transiting Planet of a Bright K0 V Star
We report the detection of a transiting Jupiter-sized planet orbiting a relatively bright (V = 11.79) K0 V star. We detected the transit light-curve signature in the course of the TrES multisiteExpand
