We report high-precision, high-cadence photometric measurements of the star HD 209458, which is known from radial velocity measurements to have a planetary-mass companion in a close orbit. We detect two separate transit events at times that are consistent with the radial velocity measurements. In both cases, the detailed shape of the transit curve due to both the limb darkening of the star and the finite size of the planet is clearly evident. Assuming stellar parameters of 1.1 R middle dot in… Expand
An extrasolar planet that transits the disk of its parent star
Planets orbiting other stars could in principle be found through the periodic dimming of starlight as a planet moves across—or ‘transits’—the line of sight between the observer and the star.Expand
Measurement of Spin-Orbit Alignment in an Extrasolar Planetary System
We determine the stellar, planetary, and orbital properties of the transiting planetary system HD 209458 through a joint analysis of high-precision radial velocities, photometry, and timing of theExpand
TrES-1: The Transiting Planet of a Bright K0 V Star
We report the detection of a transiting Jupiter-sized planet orbiting a relatively bright (V = 11.79) K0 V star. We detected the transit light-curve signature in the course of the TrES multisiteExpand

TLDR
A spectroscopic orbit with period P=3.52433+/-0.00027 days for the planetary companion that transits the solar-type star HD 209458 is reported, based on a new analysis of the iron lines in the HIRES template spectrum and also on the absolute magnitude, effective temperature, and color of the star.

A Dynamical Method for Measuring the Masses of Stars with Transiting Planets
As a planet transits the face of a star, it accelerates along the line of sight. The changing delay in the propagation of photons produces an apparent deceleration of the planet across the skyExpand
A system of three transiting super-Earths in a cool dwarf star
We present the detection of three super-Earths transiting the cool star LP415-17, monitored by K2 mission in its 13th campaign. High resolution spectra obtained with HARPS-N/TNG showed that the starExpand

Upper limits on the hot Jupiter fraction in the field of NGC 7789
We describe a method of estimating the abundance of short-period extra-solar planets based on the results of a photometric survey for planetary transits. We apply the method to a 21-night survey withExpand
Transit Photometry of the Core-dominated Planet HD 149026b
We report g, V, and r photometric time series of HD 149026 spanning predicted times of transit of the Saturn-mass planetary companion, which was recently discovered by Sato and collaborators. WeExpand
On the Selection of Photometric Planetary Transits
We present a new method for differentiating between planetary transits and eclipsing binaries on the basis of the presence of ellipsoidal light variations. These variations can be used to detectExpand
