The Hot-jupiter Kepler-17 B : Discovery , Obliquity from Stroboscopic Starspots , and Atmospheric Characterization


This paper reports the discovery and characterization of the transiting hot giant exoplanet Kepler17b. The planet has an orbital period of 1.486 days, and radial velocity measurements from the HobbyEberly Telescope show a Doppler signal of 419.5 −15.6 ms . From a transit-based estimate of the host star’s mean density, combined with an estimate of the… (More)
