Detection of Planetary Transits Across a Sun-like Star.
TLDR
High-precision, high-cadence photometric measurements of the star HD 209458 are reported, which is known from radial velocity measurements to have a planetary-mass companion in a close orbit and the detailed shape of the transit curve due to both the limb darkening of thestar and the finite size of the planet is clearly evident.

TLDR
A spectroscopic orbit with period P=3.52433+/-0.00027 days for the planetary companion that transits the solar-type star HD 209458 is reported, based on a new analysis of the iron lines in the HIRES template spectrum and also on the absolute magnitude, effective temperature, and color of the star.
