We present the discovery of KELT-22Ab, a hot Jupiter from the KELT-South survey. KELT-22Ab transits the moderately bright (V ∼ 11.1) Sun-like G2V star TYC 7518-468-1. The planet has an orbital period of days, a radius of , and a relatively large mass of . The star has , , K, (cgs), and [m/H] = ; thus other than its slightly super-solar metallicity, it appears to be a near-solar twin. Surprisingly, KELT-22A exhibits kinematics and a Galactic orbit that are somewhat atypical for thin-disk stars… 
KELT-23Ab: A Hot Jupiter Transiting a Near-solar Twin Close to the TESS and JWST Continuous Viewing Zones
We announce the discovery of KELT-23Ab, a hot Jupiter transiting the relatively bright (V = 10.3) star BD+66 911 (TYC 4187-996-1), and characterize the system using follow-up photometry and
HD 183579b: a warm sub-Neptune transiting a solar twin detected by TESS
We report the discovery and characterization of a transiting warm sub-Neptune planet around the nearby bright (V = 8.75 mag, K = 7.15 mag) solar twin HD 183579, delivered by the Transiting
MOBSTER – III. HD 62658: a magnetic Bp star in an eclipsing binary with a non-magnetic ‘identical twin’
HD 62658 (B9p V) is a little-studied chemically peculiar star. Light curves obtained by the Kilodegree Extremely Little Telescope (KELT) and Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) show clear
Hot Jupiters Are Destroyed by Tides While Their Host Stars Are on the Main Sequence
While cooler giant planets are often observed with nonzero eccentricities, the short-period circular orbits of hot Jupiters suggest that they lose orbital energy and angular momentum due to tidal
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
HATS-60b–HATS-69b: 10 Transiting Planets from HATSouth
We report the discovery of 10 transiting extrasolar planets by the HATSouth survey. The planets range in mass from the super-Neptune HATS-62b, with , to the super-Jupiter HATS-66b, with , and in size
Are There Transit Timing Variations for the Exoplanet Qatar-1b?
Motivated by the unsettled conclusion on whether there are any transit timing variations (TTVs) for the exoplanet Qatar-1b, 10 new transit light curves are presented and a TTV analysis with a
Eating Planets for Lunch and Dinner: Signatures of Planet Consumption by Evolving Stars
Exoplanets have been observed around stars at all stages of stellar evolution, in many cases orbiting in configurations that will eventually lead to the planets being engulfed or consumed by their
First Radial Velocity Results From the MINiature Exoplanet Radial Velocity Array (MINERVA)
The MINiature Exoplanet Radial Velocity Array (MINERVA) is a dedicated observatory of four 0.7 m robotic telescopes fiber-fed to a KiwiSpec spectrograph. The MINERVA mission is to discover


KELT-19Ab: A P ∼ 4.6-day Hot Jupiter Transiting a Likely Am Star with a Distant Stellar Companion
We present the discovery of the giant planet KELT-19Ab, which transits the moderately bright ( ) A8V star TYC 764-1494-1 with an orbital period of 4.61 days. We confirm the planetary nature of the
We present the discovery of KELT-1b, the first transiting low-mass companion from the wide-field Kilodegree Extremely Little Telescope-North (KELT-North) transit survey. A joint analysis of the
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 multisite
We report the discovery by the HATSouth survey of HATS-3b, a transiting extrasolar planet orbiting a V = 12.4 F dwarf star. HATS-3b has a period of P = 3.5479 days, mass of Mp = 1.07 MJ, and radius
The planet has an equilibrium temperature of T eq = 2516 K caused by its very short period orbit around the hot, twelfth magnitude host star and has the largest radius of any transiting planet yet detected.
We report the discovery of HAT-P-16b, a transiting extrasolar planet orbiting the V = 10.8 mag F8 dwarf GSC 2792-01700, with a period P = 2.775960 ± 0.000003 days, transit epoch Tc = 2455027.59293 ±
Seven temperate terrestrial planets around the nearby ultracool dwarf star TRAPPIST-1
The observations reveal that at least seven planets with sizes and masses similar to those of Earth revolve around TRAPPIST-1, and the six inner planets form a near-resonant chain, such that their orbital periods are near-ratios of small integers.
K2-136: A Binary System in the Hyades Cluster Hosting a Neptune-sized Planet
We report the discovery of a Neptune-size planet ( ) in the Hyades Cluster. The host star is in a binary system, comprising a K5V star and M7/8V star with a projected separation of 40 au. The planet
The Apparently Decaying Orbit of WASP-12b
We present new transit and occultation times for the hot Jupiter WASP-12b. The data are compatible with a constant period derivative: ms yr−1 and . However, it is difficult to tell whether we have
Empirical Tidal Dissipation in Exoplanet Hosts From Tidal Spin-up
Analysis of all 188 known hot Jupiters with an orbital period <3.5 days and a "cool" host star finds evidence that the tidal dissipation parameter ( Q ⋆ ' ) increases sharply with forcing frequency, from 105 at 0.5 day-1 to 107 at 2 day- 1.
