We present deep VLT/NACO infrared imaging and spectroscopic observations of the brown dwarf 2MASSWJ 1207334−393254, obtained during our on-going adaptive optics survey of southern young, nearby associations. This ∼25 MJup brown dwarf, located ∼70 pc from Earth, has been recently identified as a member of the TW Hydrae Association (age ∼ 8 Myr). Using adaptive optics infrared wavefront sensing to acquire sharp images of its circumstellar environment, we discovered a very faint and very red…

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.
