We report the discovery of WASP-26b, a moderately over-sized Jupiter-mass exoplanet transiting its 11.3-mag early-G-type host star (1SWASP J001824.70-151602.3; TYC 5839-876-1) every 2.7566 days. A simultaneous fit to transit photometry and radial-velocity measurements yields a planetary mass of 1.02 ± 0.03 MJup and radius of 1.32 ± 0.08 RJup. The host star, WASP-26, has a mass of

WASP-32b: A Transiting Hot Jupiter Planet Orbiting a Lithium-Poor, Solar-Type Star
We report the discovery of a transiting planet orbiting the star TYC 2-1155-1. The star, WASP-32, is a moderately bright (V = 11.3) solar-type star (Teff = 6100 ± 100 K, [Fe/H] = -0.13 ± 0.10). The
We measure the mass of a modestly irradiated giant planet, KOI-94d. We wish to determine whether this planet, which is in a 22 day orbit and receives 2700 times as much incident flux as Jupiter, is
TESS Transit Timing of Hundreds of Hot Jupiters
We provide a database of transit times and updated ephemerides for 382 planets based on data from the NASA Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) and previously reported transit times, which

Evidence for the Late Arrival of Hot Jupiters in Systems with High Host-star Obliquities
It has been shown that hot Jupiters systems with massive, hot stellar primaries exhibit a wide range of stellar obliquities. On the other hand, hot Jupiter systems with low-mass, cool primaries often
ExoClock Project. II. A Large-scale Integrated Study with 180 Updated Exoplanet Ephemerides
The ExoClock project is an inclusive, integrated, and interactive platform that was developed to monitor the ephemerides of the Ariel targets to increase the mission efficiency. The project makes the
ExoClock project: an open platform for monitoring the ephemerides of Ariel targets with contributions from the public
This study introduces the ExoClock project, an open, integrated and interactive platform with the purpose of producing a confirmed list of ephemerides for the planets that will be observed by Ariel, and develops the Exoplanet Characterisation Catalogue (ECC), a catalogue built in a consistent way to assist the ephemeris refinement process.


HAT-P-5b: A Jupiter-like Hot Jupiter Transiting a Bright Star*
We report the discovery of a planet transiting a moderately bright (V = 12.00) G star, with an orbital period of 2.788491 ± 0.000025 days. From the transit light curve we determine that the radius of
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
Improved parameters for the transiting hot Jupiters WASP-4b and WASP-5b
The gaseous giant planets WASP-4b and WASP-5b are transiting 12-magnitude solar-type stars in the Southern hemisphere. The aim of the present work is to refine the parameters of these systems using
A Jupiter-mass companion to a solar-type star
The presence of a Jupiter-mass companion to the star 51 Pegasi is inferred from observations of periodic variations in the star's radial velocity. The companion lies only about eight million
HAT-P-6b: A Hot Jupiter Transiting a Bright F Star
In the ongoing HATNet survey we have detected a giant planet, with radius 1.33 ± 0.06 RJup and mass 1.06 ± 0.12 MJup, transiting the bright (V = 10.5) star GSC 03239–00992. The planet is in a
WASP-3b: a strongly irradiated transiting gas-giant planet
The proximity and relative temperature of the host star suggests that WASP-3b is one of the hottest exoplanets known, and thus has the potential to place stringent constraints on exoplanet atmospheric models.
No planet for HD 166435
The G0 V star HD 166435 has been observed by the ber-fed spectrograph ELODIE as one of the targets in the large extra-solar planet survey that we are conducting at the Observatory of Haute-Provence.

We present a large set of theoretical isochrones, whose distinctive features mostly reside on the greatly-improved treatment of the thermally-pulsing asymptotic giant branch (TP-AGB) phase.
Efficient identification of exoplanetary transit candidates from SuperWASP light curves
