The planetary system around the naked-eye star v2 Lupi (HD 136352; TOI-2011) is composed of three exoplanets with masses of 4.7, 11.2, and 8.6 Earth masses (M⊕). The TESS and CHEOPS missions revealed that all three planets are transiting and have radii straddling the radius gap separating volatile-rich and volatile-poor super-earths. Only a partial transit of planet d had been covered so we re-observed an inferior conjunction of the long-period 8.6 M⊕ exoplanet v2 Lup d with the CHEOPS space… 

Transit detection of the long-period volatile-rich super-Earth ν2 Lupi d with CHEOPS

Exoplanets transiting bright nearby stars are key objects for advancing our knowledge of planetary formation and evolution. The wealth of photons from the host star gives detailed access to the

CHEOPS observations of the HD 108236 planetary system: a fifth planet, improved ephemerides, and planetary radii

Context. The detection of a super-Earth and three mini-Neptunes transiting the bright (V = 9.2 mag) star HD 108236 (also known as TOI-1233) was recently reported on the basis of TESS and ground-based

The changing face of AU Mic b: stellar spots, spin-orbit commensurability, and transit timing variations as seen by CHEOPS and TESS

AU Mic is a young planetary system with a resolved debris disc showing signs of planet formation and two transiting warm Neptunes near mean-motion resonances. Here we analyse three transits of AUMicb

Transits of Known Planets Orbiting a Naked-eye Star

Some of the most scientifically valuable transiting planets are those that were already known from radial velocity (RV) surveys. This is primarily because their orbits are well characterized and they

Possibility of a photometric detection of exomoons

Aims. We examined which exo-systems contain moons that may be detected in transit. Methods. We numerically modeled transit light curves of Earth-like and giant planets that cointain moons with

The HARPS search for southern extra-solar planets

Context. We present radial-velocity measurements of eight stars observed with the HARPS Echelle spectrograph mounted on the 3.6-m telescope in La Silla (ESO, Chile). Data span more than ten years and

WASP-186 and WASP-187: two hot Jupiters discovered by SuperWASP and SOPHIE with additional observations by TESS

We present the discovery of two new hot Jupiters identified from the Wide-Angle Search for Planets (WASP) survey, WASP-186b and WASP-187b (TOI-1494.01 and TOI-1493.01). Their planetary nature was

Pandora: A fast open-source exomoon transit detection algorithm

We present Pandora , a new software to model, detect, and characterize transits of extrasolar planets with moons in stellar photometric time series. Pandora uses an analytical description of the

The atmosphere and architecture of WASP-189 b probed by its CHEOPS phase curve

Context. Gas giants orbiting close to hot and massive early-type stars can reach dayside temperatures that are comparable to those of the coldest stars. These ‘ultra-hot Jupiters’ have atmospheres

CHEOPS precision phase curve of the Super-Earth 55 Cancri e

Context. 55 Cnc e is a transiting super-Earth (radius 1.88 R⊕ and mass 8 M⊕) orbiting a G8V host star on a 17-h orbit. Spitzer observations of the planet’s phase curve at 4.5 μm revealed a
