2023 October 21/22 Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece 3rd ExoClock Annual Meeting CMHASD trustees Martin Crow, Simon Dawes and Dr Mike Rushton attended the 3rd Annual Conference of ExoClock in Greece, a project to improve the ephemeris of exo-planet transits for the European Space Agencies, Aerial Mission, due to launch in 2029. During the conference […]
One more for the ExoClock project – this one being the first for CMHASD trustee and treasurer Keith Rickard. It is of Exoplanet HAT-P-23b in the constellation Delphinus. ”HAT-P-23 b is a gas giant exoplanet that orbits a G-type star. Its mass is 2.09 Jupiters, it takes 1.2 days to complete one orbit of its […]
Another for the ExoClock project by Simon Dawes of the transit of exoplanet TrES-3b. TrES-3b is in a very tight orbit around its host star, TrES-3, transiting the stellar disk once per 31 hours. For comparison, Mercury orbits the sun once every 88 days. TrES-3b is just a little larger than Jupiter, yet orbits around […]
The transit of Exoplanet TrES-3b by CMHASD member & trustee Dr. Mike Rushton using an eVscope for the ExoClock project. TrES-3b is a gas giant exoplanet orbiting the star GSC 03089-00929 a G-type star and is 0.02282 AU from its star. It has an orbital period of just 31 hours and nearly twice the mass […]
Another for the ExoClock project by CMHASD member & trustee Martin Crow of ExoPlanet TOI-1728b; a warm Super-Neptune orbiting an M-dwarf host.
More observations for the ExoClock project by Simon Dawes of Qatar-1b in the constellation of Draco taken on the 7th July 2023.
Another set of observations for the ExoClock project by member Simon Dawes 🙂 Simon wrote ”This was a tricky observation, a bright star with faint comparisons, on the night of the summer solstice – the worst night of the year for astronomy, due to the lack of real night – there were 627 15s exposures […]
Another set of transit observations for the ExoClock project by Simon Dawes of Exoplanet HAT-P-12b. HAT-P-12b is 468 light years away from Earth, orbiting a 13th magnitude K-type star in the constellation Canes Venatici. It is was discovered by the HATNet Project on April 29, 2009.
The transit of EPIC 246851721b measured by CMHASD member and trustee Martin Crow for the ExoClock project on the 21st January 2023. The transit depth is a mere 5 thousandths of a magnitude. EPIC 246851721b is a gas giant exoplanet that orbits an F-type star in the constellation Taurus. Its mass is 3 Jupiters, it […]
This is a montage of the exo-planet transits that CMHASD member and trustee Simon Dawes observed in 2022 for the ExoClock project. A total of 60 for 2022. Well done Simon!
