We report the discovery of WASP-117b, the first planet with a period beyond 10 days found by the WASP survey. The planet has a mass of $M_p= 0.2755 \pm 0.0089 \, M_{J}$, a radius of $R_p= 1.021_{-0.065}^{+0.076}\, R_{J}$ and is in an eccentric ($ e= 0.302 \pm 0.023 $), $ 10.02165 \pm 0.00055 $~d orbit around a main-sequence F9 star. The host star's brightness (V=10.15 mag) makes WASP-117 a good target for follow-up observations, and with a periastron planetary equilibrium temperature of $T_{eq…

Three hot-Jupiters on the upper edge of the mass–radius distribution: WASP-177, WASP-181, and WASP-183

We present the discovery of 3 transiting planets from the WASP survey, two hot-Jupiters: WASP-177b (~0.5 M_Jup, ~1.6 R_Jup) in a 3.07-d orbit of a V = 12.6 K2 star, WASP-183b (~0.5 M_Jup, ~1.5 R_Jup)

THE WELL-ALIGNED ORBIT OF WASP-84b: EVIDENCE FOR DISK MIGRATION OF A HOT JUPITER

We report the sky-projected orbital obliquity (spin–orbit angle) of WASP-84 b, a 0.69 M Jup ?> planet in an 8.52 day orbit around a G9V/K0V star, to be λ = −0.3 ± 1.7°. We obtain a true obliquity of

K2-287 b: An Eccentric Warm Saturn Transiting a G-dwarf

We report the discovery of K2-287b, a Saturn mass planet orbiting a G-dwarf with a period of P ≈ 15 days. First uncovered as a candidate using K2 campaign 15 data, follow-up photometry and

HD 1397b: A Transiting Warm Giant Planet Orbiting A V = 7.8 mag Subgiant Star Discovered by TESS

We report the discovery of a transiting planet first identified as a candidate in Sector 1 of the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS), and then confirmed with precision radial velocities. HD

WASP-117 b: An Eccentric Hot Saturn as a Future Complex Chemistry Laboratory

We present spectral analysis of the transiting Saturn-mass planet WASP-117 b, observed with the G141 grism of the Hubble Space Telescope's (HST) Wide Field Camera 3. We reduce and fit the extracted

Indications for very high metallicity and absence of methane in the eccentric exo-Saturn WASP-117b

Aims. We investigate the atmospheric composition of the long-period (Porb = 10 days) eccentric exo-Saturn WASP-117b. WASP-117b could be similar in atmospheric temperature and chemistry to WASP-107b.

SPIN–ORBIT ALIGNMENT FOR THREE TRANSITING HOT JUPITERS: WASP-103b, WASP-87b, and WASP-66b

We have measured the sky-projected spin–orbit alignments for three transiting hot Jupiters, WASP-103b, WASP-87b, and WASP-66b, using spectroscopic measurements of the Rossiter–McLaughlin effect, with

EXOPLANETARY SPIN–ORBIT ALIGNMENT: RESULTS FROM THE ENSEMBLE OF ROSSITER–MCLAUGHLIN OBSERVATIONS

One possible diagnostic of planet formation, orbital migration, and tidal evolution is the angle ψ between a planet's orbital axis and the spin axis of its parent star. In general, ψ cannot be
