We present new self-consistent atmosphere models for transiting planets TrES-1 and HD209458b. The planets were recently observed with the Spitzer Space Telescope in bands centered on 4.5 and 8.0 μm, for TrES-1, and 24 μm, for HD209458b. We find that standard solar metallicity models fit the observations for HD209458b. For TrES-1, which has an Teff ∼ 300 K… CONTINUE READING
