We report on the discovery of WASP-12b, a new transiting extrasolar planet with Rpl = 1.79+0.09−0.09 RJ and Mpl = 1.41+0.10−0.10 MJ. The planet and host star properties were derived from a Monte Carlo Markov Chain analysis of the transit photometry and radial velocity data. Furthermore, by comparing the stellar spectrum with theoretical spectra and stellar evolution models, we determined that the host star is a supersolar metallicity ([M/H] = 0.3+0.05−0.15), late-F (Teff = 6300+200−100 K) star… 

WASP-19b: THE SHORTEST PERIOD TRANSITING EXOPLANET YET DISCOVERED

We report on the discovery of a new extremely short period transiting extrasolar planet, WASP-19b. The planet has mass Mpl = 1.15 ± 0.08 MJ, radius Rpl = 1.31 ± 0.06 RJ, and orbital period P =

WASP-21b: a hot-Saturn exoplanet transiting a thick disc star

We report the discovery of WASP-21b, a new transiting exoplanet discovered by the Wide Angle Search for Planets ( WASP) Consortium and established and characterized with the FIES, SOPHIE, CORALIE and

WASP-22 b: A TRANSITING “HOT JUPITER” PLANET IN A HIERARCHICAL TRIPLE SYSTEM

High-resolution spectroscopy obtained with the CORALIE and HARPS spectrographs confirms the presence of a planetary mass companion with an orbital period of 3.533 days in a near-circular orbit in the star TYC 6446-326-1.

WASP-24 b: A NEW TRANSITING CLOSE-IN HOT JUPITER ORBITING A LATE F-STAR

We report the discovery of a new transiting close-in giant planet, WASP-24 b, in a 2.341 day orbit, 0.037 AU from its F8-9 type host star. By matching the star's spectrum with theoretical models, we

WASP-12b as a prolate, inflated and disrupting planet from tidal dissipation

An analysis of the recently discovered transiting planet WASP-12b reveals that the planet is losing mass to its host star at a rate of about 10-7MJ per year, and concludes that dissipation of the star's tidal perturbation in the planet’s convective envelope provides the energy source for its large volume.

WASP-23b: a transiting hot Jupiter around a K dwarf and its Rossiter-McLaughlin effect

We report the discovery of a new transiting planet in the southern hemisphere. It was found by the WASP-south transit survey and confirmed photometrically and spectroscopically by the 1.2 m Swiss

The Orbit of WASP-12b Is Decaying

WASP-12b is a transiting hot Jupiter on a 1.09 day orbit around a late-F star. Since the planet’s discovery in 2008, the time interval between transits has been decreasing by 29 ± 2 ms yr−1. This is

WASP-17b: AN ULTRA-LOW DENSITY PLANET IN A PROBABLE RETROGRADE ORBIT

It will be important to determine more precisely the current orbital eccentricity by further high-precision radial velocity measurements or by timing the secondary eclipse, both to reduce the uncertainty on the planet's radius and to test tidal-heating models.

Decaying Orbit of the Hot Jupiter WASP-12b: Confirmation with TESS Observations

Theory suggests that the orbits of some close-in giant planets should decay due to tidal interactions with their host stars. To date, WASP-12b is the only hot Jupiter reported to have a decaying

WASP-80b: a gas giant transiting a cool dwarf

We report the discovery of a planet transiting the star WASP-80 (1SWASP J201240.26-020838.2; 2MASS J20124017-0208391; TYC 5165-481-1; BPM 80815; V = 11.9, K = 8.4). Our analysis shows this is a 0.55

WASP-10b: A 3M , gas-giant planet transiting a late-type K star

Simultaneous fitting to the photometric and radial velocity data using a Markov-chain Monte Carlo procedure leads to a planet radius of 1.28RJ, a mass of 2.96MJ and eccentricity of �0.06, which shows promise for future late-type dwarf star surveys.
