The ExoClock project is an inclusive, integrated, and interactive platform that was developed to monitor the ephemerides of the Ariel targets to increase the mission efficiency. The project makes the best use of all available resources, i.e., observations from ground telescopes, midtime values from the literature, and finally, observations from space instruments. Currently, the ExoClock network includes 280 participants with telescopes capable of observing 85% of the currently known Ariel… 

The Ariel Target List: The Impact of TESS and the Potential for Characterizing Multiple Planets within a System

The ESA Ariel mission has been adopted for launch in 2029 and will conduct a survey of around 1000 exoplanetary atmospheres during its primary mission life. By providing homogeneous data sets with a

A CHEOPS Search for Massive, Long-period Companions to the Warm Jupiter K2-139 b

K2-139 b is a warm Jupiter with an orbital period of 28.4 days, but only three transits of this system have previously been observed–in the long-cadence mode of K2–limiting the precision with which

WASP-35 and HAT-P-30/WASP-51: Reanalysis using TESS and Ground-based Transit Photometry

High-precision transit observations provide excellent opportunities for characterizing the physical properties of exoplanetary systems. These physical properties supply many pieces of information for

Observation scheduling and automatic data reduction for the Antarctic Telescope, ASTEP+

The possibility to observe transiting exoplanets from Dome C in Antarctica provides immense benefits: stable weather conditions, limited atmospheric turbulence, and a night that lasts almost three

TESS Transit Timing of Hundreds of Hot Jupiters

We provide a database of transit times and updated ephemerides for 382 planets based on data from the NASA Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) and previously reported transit times, which



ExoClock project: an open platform for monitoring the ephemerides of Ariel targets with contributions from the public

This study introduces the ExoClock project, an open, integrated and interactive platform with the purpose of producing a confirmed list of ephemerides for the planets that will be observed by Ariel, and develops the Exoplanet Characterisation Catalogue (ECC), a catalogue built in a consistent way to assist the ephemeris refinement process.

Ephemeris refinement of 21 hot Jupiter exoplanets with high timing uncertainties

Transit events of extrasolar planets offer a wealth of information for planetary characterization. However, for many known targets, the uncertainty of their predicted transit windows prohibits an

Transiting exoplanets from the CoRoT space mission. II. CoRoT-Exo-2b: a transiting planet around an

Context. The CoRoT mission, a pioneer in exoplanet searches from space, has completed its first 150 days of continuous observations of ∼12 000 stars in the galactic plane. An analysis of the raw data


We present 22 new transit observations of the exoplanets WASP-18Ab, WASP-19b, and WASP-77Ab, from the Transit Monitoring in the South project. We simultaneously model our newly collected transit

A Photometric Study of the Hot Exoplanet WASP-19b

Context. The sample of hot Jupiters that have been studied in great detail is still growing. In particular, when the planet transits its host star, it is possible to measure the planetary radius and

Transiting Exoplanet Monitoring Project (TEMP). IV. Refined System Parameters, Transit Timing Variations, and Orbital Stability of the Transiting Planetary System HAT-P-25

We present eight new light curves of the transiting extra-solar planet HAT-P-25b obtained from 2013 to 2016 with three telescopes at two observatories. We use the new light curves, along with recent


The transiting exoplanetary system WASP-11/HAT-P-10 was observed using the CCD camera at Yunnan Observatories, China from 2008 to 2011, and four new transit light curves were obtained. Combined with


We present 15 new transit observations of the exoplanet WASP-43b in the i′, g′, and R filters with the 1.0 m telescopes of Las Cumbres Observatory Global Telescope Network and the IAC80 telescope. We

Securing the Legacy of TESS through the Care and Maintenance of TESS Planet Ephemerides

The ephemerides of most primary mission TESS planets (as well as those newly discovered during the extended mission) will again have expired by the time future facilities such as the ELTs, Ariel and the possible LUVOIR/OST missions come online, unless maintenance follow-up observations are obtained.

Detection Limits of Exoplanetary Atmospheres with 2-m Class Telescopes

It is demonstrated here that 2-m class telescopes equipped with spectrographs with high resolving power may be used for a certain number of potential targets, and the suitability of this class of telescopes for the upcoming flood of scientifically interesting targets from TESS space mission is discussed.
