A planet transits an 11th magnitude, G1 V star in the constellation Corona Borealis. We designate the planet XO-1b and the star XO-1, also known as GSC 02041-01657. XO-1 lacks a trigonometric distance; we estimate it to be 200 ± 20 pc. Of the 10 stars currently known to host extrasolar transiting planets, the star XO-1 is the most similar to the Sun in its physical characteristics: its radius is 1.0 ± 0.08 R☉, its mass is 1.0 ± 0.03 M☉, its V sin i < 3 km s-1, and its metallicity [Fe/H] is 0… 

XO-3b: A Massive Planet in an Eccentric Orbit Transiting an F5 V Star

We report the discovery of a massive planet (Mpsin i = 13.02 ± 0.64 MJ; total mass = 13.25 ± 0.64 MJ), large (1.95 ± 0.16 RJ) planet in a transiting, eccentric orbit (e = 0.260 ± 0.017) around a 10th

HAT-P-9b: A LOW-DENSITY PLANET TRANSITING A MODERATELY FAINT F STAR

We report the discovery of a planet transiting a moderately faint (V = 12.3 mag) late F star, with an orbital period of 3.92289 ± 0.00004 days. From the transit light curve and radial velocity

XO-5b: A Transiting Jupiter-sized Planet with a 4 Day Period

The star XO-5 (GSC 02959–00729, V = 12.1, G8 V) hosts a Jupiter-sized, Rp = 1.15 ± 0.12 RJ, transiting extrasolar planet, XO-5b, with an orbital period of 4.2 days. The planet’s mass, Mp = 1.15 ±

XO-2b: Transiting Hot Jupiter in a Metal-rich Common Proper Motion Binary

We report on a V = 11.2 early K dwarf, XO-2 (GSC 03413-00005), that hosts a Rp = 0.98±0.010.03 RJ, Mp = 0.57 ± 0.06 MJ transiting extrasolar planet, XO-2b, with an orbital period of 2.615857 ±

XO-7 b: A Transiting Hot Jupiter with a Massive Companion on a Wide Orbit

Transiting planets orbiting bright stars are the most favorable targets for follow-up and characterization. We report the discovery of the transiting hot Jupiter XO-7 b and of a second, massive

DISCOVERY OF A TRANSITING PLANET AND EIGHT ECLIPSING BINARIES IN HATNet FIELD G205

We report the discovery of HAT-P-8b, a transiting planet with mass Mp = 1.52+0.18−0.16 MJ, radius Rp = 1.50+0.08−0.06 RJ, and photometric period P = 3.076 days. HAT-P-8b has a somewhat inflated

WASP-25b: A 0.6M planet in the Southern hemisphere

The relationship of planetary radius to planetary equilibrium temperature and host star metallicity for transiting exoplanets with a similar mass to WASP-25b is investigated, finding that these two parameters explain the radii of most low-mass planets well.

Transiting extrasolar planetary candidates in the Galactic bulge

16 candidates with orbital periods between 0.4 and 4.2 days are discovered, constituting a new class of ultra-short-period planets, which occur only around stars of less than 0.88 M[circdot], indicating that those orbiting very close to more-luminous stars might be evaporatively destroyed or that jovian planets aroundStars of lower mass might migrate to smaller radii.

HAT-P-13b,c: A TRANSITING HOT JUPITER WITH A MASSIVE OUTER COMPANION ON AN ECCENTRIC ORBIT

We report on the discovery of a planetary system with a close-in transiting hot Jupiter on a near circular orbit and a massive outer planet on a highly eccentric orbit. The inner planet, HAT-P-13b,

KELT-3b: A HOT JUPITER TRANSITING A V = 9.8 LATE-F STAR

We report the discovery of KELT-3b, a moderately inflated transiting hot Jupiter with a mass of , radius of 1.345 ± 0.072 RJ, and an orbital period of 2.7033904 ± 0.000010 days. The host star,

Detection of Planetary Transits Across a Sun-like Star

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.
