Even though tens of directly imaged companions have been discovered in the past decades, the number of directly confirmed multiplanet systems is still small. Dynamical analysis of these systems imposes important constraints on formation mechanisms of these wide-orbit companions. As part of the Young Suns Exoplanet Survey we report the detection of a second planetary-mass companion around the 17 Myr-old, solar-type star TYC 8998-760-1 that is located in the Lower Centaurus Crux subgroup of the… 

Discovery of a directly imaged planet to the young solar analog YSES 2

Context. To understand the origin and formation pathway of wide-orbit gas giant planets, it is necessary to expand the limited sample of these objects. The mass of exoplanets derived with

The Scorpion Planet Survey: Wide-orbit Giant Planets Around Young A-type Stars

The first directly imaged exoplanets indicated that wide-orbit giant planets could be more common around A-type stars. However, the relatively small number of nearby A-stars has limited the precision

Dynamical Mass of the Exoplanet Host Star HR 8799

HR 8799 is a young A5/F0 star hosting four directly imaged giant planets at wide separations (∼16–78 au), which are undergoing orbital motion and have been continuously monitored with adaptive optics

Direct Imaging Discovery of a Young Brown Dwarf Companion to an A2V Star

We present the discovery and spectroscopy of HIP 75056Ab, a companion directly imaged at a very small separation of 0.″125 to an A2V star in the Scorpius–Centaurus OB2 association. Our observations

A wide-orbit giant planet in the high-mass b Centauri binary system.

The results show that planets can reside in much more massive stellar systems than what would be expected from extrapolation of previous results.

The Second Discovery from the COCONUTS Program: A Cold Wide-orbit Exoplanet around a Young Field M Dwarf at 10.9 pc

We present the identification of the second discovery from the COol Companions ON Ultrawide orbiTS (COCONUTS) program, the COCONUTS-2 system, composed of the M3 dwarf L 34-26 and the T9 dwarf WISEPA

Imaging low-mass planets within the habitable zones of nearby stars with ground-based mid-infrared imaging

Giant exoplanets on 10-100 au orbits have been directly imaged around young stars. The peak of the thermal emission from these warm young planets is in the near-infrared (∼1-5 µm), whereas mature,

The post-main-sequence fate of the HR 8799 planetary system

The noteworthy four-planet HR 8799 system teeters on the brink of gravitational instability and contains an A-type host star which is characteristic of the progenitors of the majority of known white

A Detailed Characterization of HR 8799's Debris Disk with ALMA in Band 7

The exoplanetary system of HR 8799 is one of the rare systems in which multiple planets have been directly imaged. Its architecture is strikingly similar to that of the solar system, with the four

The 13CO-rich atmosphere of a young accreting super-Jupiter.

Observations of 13CO in the atmosphere of the young, accreting super-Jupiter TYC 8998-760-1 b suggest a 12CO/13CO ratio of [Formula: see text](90% confidence), a substantial enrichment in 13C with respect to the terrestrial standard and the local interstellar value.



Images of a fourth planet orbiting HR 8799

The HR 8799 planetary system, with its four young giant planets and known cold/warm debris belts, is a unique laboratory in which to study the formation and evolution of giant planets at wide (>10 au) separations.

Discovery of a warm, dusty giant planet around HIP 65426

Aims. The SHINE program is a high-contrast near-infrared survey of 600 young, nearby stars aimed at searching for and characterizing new planetary systems using VLT/SPHERE’s unprecedented
