Posted by & filed under .

The reasearch team of the Taurus Hill Observatory managed to measure the light curve of the exoplanet GJ436b 24.3.2009. This was fourth time the research team measured the light curve of this interesting exoplanet. The reason why GJ436b is so interesting is that there are some variations in the measurements that could indicate the precense of the more than one exoplanet. THO research team used five comparison stars, photometric R -filter and 30 sec. exporure times for measurements.
