We show that stars with transiting planets for which the stellar obliquity is large are preferentially hot (T_(eff) > 6250 K). This could explain why small obliquities were observed in the earliest measurements, which focused on relatively cool stars drawn from Doppler surveys, as opposed to hotter stars that emerged more recently from transit surveys. The observed trend could be due to differences in planet formation and migration around stars of varying mass. Alternatively, we speculate that… Expand

On the tidal origin of hot Jupiter stellar obliquity trends
It is debated whether the two hot Jupiter populations --- those on orbits misaligned from their host star's spin axis and those well-aligned --- result from two migration channels or from two tidalExpand
TIDAL DISSIPATION AND OBLIQUITY EVOLUTION IN HOT JUPITER SYSTEMS
Two formation scenarios have been proposed to explain the tight orbits of hot Jupiters. They could be formed in orbits with a small inclination (with respect to the stellar spin) via disk migration,Expand
TOWARD CHEMICAL CONSTRAINTS ON HOT JUPITER MIGRATION
The origin of hot Jupiters—gas giant exoplanets orbiting very close to their host stars—is a long-standing puzzle. Planet formation theories suggest that such planets are unlikely to have formed inExpand
A paucity of proto-hot Jupiters on super-eccentric orbits
Gas giant planets orbiting within 0.1 AU of their host stars, unlikely to have formed in situ, are evidence for planetary migration. It is debated whether the typical hot Jupiter smoothly migratedExpand
Exterior Companions to Hot Jupiters Orbiting Cool Stars are Coplanar
The existence of hot Jupiters has challenged theories of planetary formation since the first extrasolar planets were detected. Giant planets are generally believed to form far from their host stars,Expand
Hot Jupiters are Destroyed by Tides While Their Host Stars are on the Main Sequence
While cooler giant planets are often observed with non-zero eccentricities, the short-period circular orbits of hot Jupiters suggest that they lose orbital energy and angular momentum due to tidalExpand
A Hot Jupiter for Breakfast? Early Stellar Ingestion of Planets May Be Common
Models of planet formation and evolution predict that giant planets form efficiently in protoplanetary disks, that most of these migrate rapidly to the disk?s inner edge, and that, if the arrivingExpand
Tidal dissipation in planet-hosting stars: damping of spin-orbit misalignment and survival of hot Jupiters
Observations of hot Jupiters around solar-type stars with very short orbital periods (∼1 d) suggest that tidal dissipation in such stars is not too efficient so that these planets can survive againstExpand
Constraints on Obliquities of Kepler Planet-Hosting Stars
Stars with hot Jupiters have obliquities ranging from 0-180 degrees, but relatively little is known about the obliquities of stars with smaller planets. Using data from the California-Kepler Survey,Expand
The Effect of Stellar Evolution on Migrating Warm Jupiters
Warm jupiters are an unexpected population of extrasolar planets that are too near to their host to have formed in situ, but distant enough to retain a significant eccentricity in the face of tidalExpand
