Exoplanet HD80606b transit missed due the clouds.

Posted by & filed under .

Exoplanet HD80606b is located in the “Big Bear” and its transit lasts about 17 hours. You can observe the transit in four month periods and this time the transit occured in the darkest time of the year here in Finland. The weather was promising, but after a hour the weather turned out to be very poor. Due that the observing group (Veli-Pekka Hentunen and Markku Nissinen) had to stop the photographing of the HD80606b transit. The comparison stars used in this measurement were HD80607 (C1) and TYC 3431-1373-1 (C2).
