We present synoptic optical photometry of HD 189733, the chromospherically active parent star of one of the most intensively studied exoplanets. We have significantly extended the timespan of our previously reported observations and refined the estimate of the stellar rotation period by more than an order of magnitude: P = 11.953 ± 0.009 days. We derive a lower limit on the inclination of the stellar rotation axis of 54° (with 95% confidence), corroborating earlier evidence that the stellar…

X-RAY ACTIVITY PHASED WITH PLANET MOTION IN HD 189733?

We report on the follow-up XMM-Newton observation of the planet-hosting star HD 189733 we obtained in 2011 April. We observe a flare just after the secondary transit of the hot Jupiter. This event

Abstract A close-in massive planet affects the angular momentum of its host star through tidal and magnetic interactions. The transiting planets allow us to study the distribution of the spin and

MULTIWAVELENGTH CONSTRAINTS ON THE DAY–NIGHT CIRCULATION PATTERNS OF HD 189733b

We present new Spitzer observations of the phase variation of the hot Jupiter HD 189733b in the MIPS 24 μm bandpass, spanning the same part of the planet's orbit as our previous observations in the

Stellar activity of planetary host star HD 189 733

Aims. Extra-solar planet search programs require high-precision velocity measurements. They need to determine how to differentiate between radial-velocity variations due to Doppler motion and the

Evaporation of the planet HD 189733b observed in H I Lyman-α

We observed three transits of the extrasolar planet HD 189733b in HI Lyman-α and in a few other lines in the ultraviolet with HST/ACS, in the search for atmospheric signatures. We detect a transit

THE GJ1214 SUPER-EARTH SYSTEM: STELLAR VARIABILITY, NEW TRANSITS, AND A SEARCH FOR ADDITIONAL PLANETS

The super-Earth GJ1214b transits a nearby M dwarf that exhibits a 1% intrinsic variability in the near-infrared. Here, we analyze new observations to refine the physical properties of both the star

Hot Jupiters accreting onto their parent stars: Effects on the stellar activity

Present Address Hot Jupiters (HJs) are massive gaseous planets orbiting close to their host stars. Due to their physical characteristics and proximity to the central star, HJs are the natural

MOST space-based photometry of the transiting exoplanet system HD 189733: precise timing measurements for transits across an active star

We have measured transit times for HD 189733b passing in front of its bright (V = 7.67), chromospherically active, and spotted parent star. Nearly continuous broadband optical photometry of this

DERIVING STELLAR INCLINATION OF SLOW ROTATORS USING STELLAR ACTIVITY

Stellar inclination is an important parameter for many astrophysical studies. Although different techniques allow us to estimate stellar inclination for fast rotators, it becomes much more difficult

XMM-NEWTON OBSERVATIONS OF HD 189733 DURING PLANETARY TRANSITS

We report on two XMM-Newton observations of the planetary host star HD 189733. The system has a close in planet and it can potentially affect the coronal structure via interactions with the
