Context. The CoRoT mission, a pioneer in exoplanet searches from space, has completed its first 150 days of continuous observations of ∼12 000 stars in the galactic plane. An analysis of the raw data identifies the most promising candidates and triggers the ground-based follow-up. Aims. We report on the discovery of the transiting planet CoRoT-Exo-2b, with a period of 1.743 days, and characterize its main parameters. Methods. We filter the CoRoT raw light curve of cosmic impacts, orbital…

Transiting exoplanets from the CoRoT space mission. IV. CoRoT-Exo-4b: a transiting planet in a 9.2 d
CoRoT, the first space-based transit search, provides ultra-high precision light curves with continuous time-sampling over periods, of up to 5 months. This allows the detection of transiting planets

Hubble Space Telescope Time-Series Photometry of the Transiting Planet of HD 209458
We have observed four transits of the planet of HD 209458 using the STIS spectrograph on the Hubble Space Telescope (HST). Summing the recorded counts over wavelength between 582 and 638 nm yields a
A Stellar Companion in the HD 189733 System with a Known Transiting Extrasolar Planet
We show that the very close-by (19 pc) K0 star HD 189733, already found to be orbited by a transiting giant planet, is the primary of a double star system, with the secondary being a mid-M dwarf with
Hubble Space Telescope time-series photometry of the planetary transit of HD 189733: no moon, no rings, starspots
We monitored three transits of the giant gas planet around the nearby K dwarf HD 189733 with the ACS camera on the Hubble Space Telescope. The resulting very-high accuracy lightcurve (signal-to-noise
The Berlin Exoplanet Search Telescope System
We describe a small telescope system, the Berlin Exoplanet Search Telescope (BEST), dedicated to the search for planetary transits of Jupiter‐sized planets on close‐in orbits. This system consists of
Comparative blind test of five planetary transit detection algorithms on realistic synthetic light curves
Because photometric surveys of exoplanet transits are very promising sources of future discoveries, many algorithms are being developed to detect transit signals in stellar light curves. This paper
