  • HD106906b is an ~11$M_{\mathrm{Jup}}$, ~15Myr old directly-imaged exoplanet orbiting at an extremely large distance from its host star. The wide separation (7.11 arcsec) between HD106906b and its host star greatly reduces the difficulty in direct-imaging observations, making it one of the most favorable directly-imaged exoplanets for detailed characterization. In this paper, we present HST/WFC3/IR time-resolved observations of HD106906b in the F127M, F139M, and F153M bands. We have achieved ~1… CONTINUE READING
