We report the discovery in $TESS$ Sectors 3 and 4 of a compact triply eclipsing triple star system. TIC 209409435 is a previously unknown eclipsing binary with a period of 5.717 days, and the presence of a third star in an outer eccentric orbit of 121.872 day period was found from two sets of third-body eclipses and from eclipse timing variations. The latter exhibit signatures of strong 3rd-body perturbations. After the discovery, we obtained follow-up ground-based photometric observations of… 
TIC 278825952: a triply eclipsing hierarchical triple system with the most intrinsically circular outer orbit
We report the discovery of a compact triply eclipsing triple star system in the southern continuous viewing zone of the TESS space telescope. TIC 278825952 is a previously unstudied, circular
Photodynamical Modeling of the Fascinating Eclipses in the Triple-star System KOI-126
We explore the fascinating eclipses and dynamics of the compact hierarchical triple-star system KOI-126 (KIC 5897826). This system is composed of a pair of M-dwarf stars (KOI-126 B and C) in a 1.74
TIC 172900988: A Transiting Circumbinary Planet Detected in One Sector of TESS Data
We report the first discovery of a transiting circumbinary planet detected from a single sector of Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) data. During Sector 21, the planet TIC 172900988b
Mysterious Dust-emitting Object Orbiting TIC 400799224
We report the discovery of a unique object of uncertain nature—but quite possibly a disintegrating asteroid or minor planet—orbiting one star of the widely separated binary TIC 400799224. We
Space-Based Photometry of Binary Stars: From Voyager to TESS
Binary stars are crucial laboratories for stellar physics, so have been photometric targets for space missions beginning with the very first orbiting telescope (OAO-2) launched in 1968. This review
Detection of period variations of eclipsing binaries in the Catalina Sky Survey
We present 126 eclipsing binary candidates among 4683 Catalina Sky Surveys (CSS) detached and semi-detached eclipsing binary systems (EBs) showing cyclic or quadratic period variations over a 12 yr
Eclipsing Binaries in Dynamically Interacting Close, Multiple Systems
Close, compact, hierarchical, multiple stellar systems, i.e., multiples having an outer orbital period from months to a few years, comprise a small, but continuously growing group of the triple and
First Results on RR Lyrae Stars with the TESS Space Telescope: Untangling the Connections between Mode Content, Colors, and Distances
The Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) space telescope is collecting continuous, high-precision optical photometry of stars throughout the sky, including thousands of RR Lyrae stars. In
The Visual Survey Group: A Decade of Hunting Exoplanets and Unusual Stellar Events with Space-Based Telescopes
This article presents the history of the Visual Survey Group (VSG) - a Professional-Amateur (Pro-Am) collaboration within the field of astronomy working on data from several space missions (Kepler, K2


TICs 167692429 and 220397947: the first compact hierarchical triple stars discovered with TESS
We report the discovery and complex analyses of the first two compact hierarchical triple star systems discovered with TESS in or near its southern continuous viewing zone during Year 1. Both TICs
Photodynamical analysis of the triply eclipsing hierarchical triple system EPIC 249432662
Using Campaign 15 data from the K2 mission, we have discovered a triply eclipsing triple star system: EPIC 249432662. The inner eclipsing binary system has a period of 8.23 d, with shallow 3 per cent
