Infrared Eclipses of the Strongly Irradiated Planet Wasp-33b, and Oscillations of Its Host Star

Abstract

We observe two secondary eclipses of the strongly irradiated transiting planet WASP-33b, in the Ks band at 2.15μm, and one secondary eclipse each at 3.6μm and 4.5μm using Warm Spitzer. This planet orbits an A5V δ-Scuti star that is known to exhibit low amplitude non-radial p-mode oscillations at about 0.1% semi-amplitude. We detect stellar oscillations in… (More)
