This Letter reports on the photometric detection of transits of the Neptune-mass planet orbiting the nearby M-dwarf star GJ 436. It is by far the closest, smallest and least massive transiting planet detected so far. Its mass is slightly larger than Neptune's at M = 22.6 ± 1.9 M⊕. The shape and depth of the transit lightcurves show that it is crossing the(More)

We report on the BVRI multi-band follow-up photometry of the transiting extrasolar planet HD 189733b. We revise the transit parameters and find planetary radius R P = 1.154 ± 0.032R J and inclination i P = 85.79 ± 0.24 •. The new density (∼ 1g cm −3) is significantly higher than the former estimate (∼ 0.75g cm −3); this shows that from the current sample of(More)
This paper presents an application of the TwO-Dimensional CORrelation (TODCOR) algorithm to multi-order spectra. The combination of many orders enables the detection and measurement of the radial velocities of very faint companions. The technique is first applied here to the case of HD 41004, where the secondary is 3.68 magnitudes fainter than the primary(More)
We report the discovery of a planet transiting a moderately bright (V = 12.00) G star, with an orbital period of 2.788491 ± 0.000025 days. From the transit light curve we determine that the radius of the planet is R p = 1.257 ± 0.053 R Jup. HAT-P-5b has a mass of M p = 1.06 ± 0.11 M Jup , similar to the average mass of previously-known transiting(More)
Aims. Study the high-mass X-ray binary X-7 in M33 using broad-band optical data. Methods. We used recently published CFHT r ′ and i ′ data for variable stars in M33 to extract the light curve of the optical counterpart of X-7. We combined these data with DIRECT B and V measurements in order to search for an independent optical modulation with the X-ray(More)

We present Hubble Space Telescope (HST) optical and near-ultraviolet transmission spectra of the transiting hot Jupiter HD 189733b, taken with the repaired Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph (STIS) instrument. The resulting spectra cover the range 2900–5700 Å and reach per exposure signal-to-noise ratio levels greater than 11 000 within a 500-Å bandwidth.(More)
We present Spitzer Space T elescope infrared photometry of a primary transit of the hot Neptune GJ 436b. The observations were obtained using the 8 µm band of the InfraRed Array Camera (IRAC). The high accuracy of the transit data and the weak limb-darkening in the 8 µm IRAC band allow us to derive (assuming M = 0.44 ± 0.04 M⊙ for the primary) a precise(More)
This paper presents an analysis that searched for systematic effects within the CoRoT exoplanet field light curves. The analysis identified a systematic effect that modified the zero point of most CoRoT exposures as a function of stellar magnitude. We could find this effect only after preparing a set of learning light curves that were relatively free of(More)
We report the discovery of HAT-P-17b,c, a multi-planet system with an inner transiting planet in a short-period, eccentric orbit and an outer planet in a 4.4 yr, nearly circular orbit. The inner planet, HAT-P-17b, transits the bright V = 10.54 early K dwarf star GSC 2717-00417, with an orbital period P = 10.338523 ± 0.000009 days, orbital eccentricity e =(More)
