Two years ago, the OGLE-III survey (Optical Gravitational L ensing Experiment) announced the detection of 54 short period multi-transiting objects in the Galactic bulg e (Udalski et al., 2002a, 2002b). Some of these objects were c onsidered to be potential hot Jupiters. In order to determine the true n ature of these objects and to characterize their actual mass , we conducted a radial velocity follow-up of 18 of the smallest t ransiting candidates. We describe here our procedure and re port… CONTINUE READING
