  • We report ground-based observations at 0.91 μm of the occultation of the hot Jupiter WASP-33b by its A5 host star. We measure the planet to be 0.109 ± 0.030 per cent as bright as its host star at 0.91 μm. This corresponds to a brightness temperature, TB= 3620+200− 250 K, significantly higher than the zero-albedo equilibrium temperature for both isotropic re-radiation (2750 ± 37 K) and uniform day-side-only re-radiation (3271 ± 44 K), but consistent with the zero-redistribution temperature (3515… CONTINUE READING
