  • The active K2 V star Eri hosts the nearest known extrasolar planet. With an angular separation of about 1'' on average, and an age of a few to several hundred megayears, Eri b is one of the prime candidates for becoming the first definitive extrasolar planet imaged directly. We present a multiepoch deep differential imaging survey performed with NACO-SDI at the VLT with the aim of finding the planet. The results are combined with recent astrometry in an attempt to further constrain the… CONTINUE READING
