The large relative sizes of circumstellar and circumplanetary disks imply that they might be seen in eclipse in stellar light curves. We estimate that a survey of ~104 young (~10 million year old) post-accretion pre-main-sequence stars monitored for ~10 years should yield at least a few deep eclipses from circumplanetary disks and disks surrounding low-mass companion stars. We present photometric and spectroscopic data for a pre-main-sequence K5 star (1SWASP J140747.93?394542.6 = ASAS J140748… Expand
Modeling Transiting Circumstellar Disks: Characterizing the Newly Discovered Eclipsing Disk System OGLE LMC-ECL-11893
We investigate the nature of the unusual eclipsing star OGLE LMC-ECL-11893 (OGLE J05172127-6900558) in the Large Magellanic Cloud recently reported by Dong et al. 2014. The eclipse period for thisExpand
FOLLOW-UP OBSERVATIONS OF PTFO 8-8695: A 3 MYR OLD T TAURI STAR HOSTING A JUPITER-MASS PLANETARY CANDIDATE
We present Spitzer 4.5 μm light curve observations, Keck NIRSPEC radial velocity observations, and LCOGT optical light curve observations of PTFO 8-8695, which may host a Jupiter-sized planet in aExpand
First Results from the Disk Eclipse Search with KELT (DESK) Survey
TLDR
The dimming of RW Aurigae is attributed to an occultation by its tidally disrupted disk, with the disruption perhaps resulting from a recent flyby of its binary companion. Expand

We describe a joint high-contrast imaging survey for planets at the Keck and Very Large Telescope of the last large sample of debris disks identified by the Spitzer Space Telescope. No new substellarExpand
Periodic eclipses of the young star PDS 110 discovered with WASP and KELT photometry
We report the discovery of eclipses by circumstellar disc material associated with the young star PDS 110 in the Ori OB1a association using the SuperWASP and KELT surveys. PDS 110 (HD 290380, IRASExpand
An eclipsing double-line spectroscopic binary at the stellar/substellar boundary in the Upper Scorpius OB association
We aim at constraining evolutionary models at low mass and young ages by identifying interesting transiting system members of the nearest OB association to the Sun, Upper Scorpius, targeted by theExpand
An ALMA disk mass for the candidate protoplanetary companion to FW Tau
We present ALMA observations of the FW Tau system, a close binary pair of M5 stars with a wide-orbit (300 AU projected separation) substellar companion. The companion is extremely faint and red inExpand
Mass and period limits on the ringed companion transiting the young star J1407
The young (∼16 Myr) pre-main-sequence star in Sco–Cen 1SWASP J140747.93−394542.6, hereafter referred to as J1407, underwent a deep eclipse in 2007 April, bracketed by several shallower eclipses inExpand
The transiting dust clumps in the evolved disc of the Sun-like UXor RZ Psc
TLDR
It is suggested that the rarity of Sun-like stars showing disc-related variability may arise because (i) any accretion streams are transparent and/or (ii) turbulence above the inner rim is normally shadowed by a flared outer disc. Expand
Modeling giant extrasolar ring systems in eclipse and the case of J1407b: sculpting by exomoons?
The light curve of 1SWASP J140747.93-394542.6, a $\sim$16 Myr old star in the Sco-Cen OB association, underwent a complex series of deep eclipses that lasted 56 days, centered on April 2007. ThisExpand
