The first exoplanet light curve transit of this fall’s observation period was measured at Taurus Hill Observatory 30.8.2021. The target was HAT-P-10b / WASP-11b. The transit was exactly as predicted, the duration of the transit was about 160 min and the dimming of the parent star was about 25 mmag.
EPSC, or Europlanet Science Congress, 2021 will be held online, as in the previous year. Taurus Hill Observatory observations will be presented again this time as part of the ODAA5 session on Friday, September 24th. It is not possible to present a typical scientific poster in a virtual conference, but now, for the second year […]
An alternative celebration of COVID “vappu” (May Day), the exoplanet observation at the Taurus Hill Observatory 30.4. – 1.5.2021 from 23.40 to 02.45 Finnish time. The transit duration of the exoplanet Qatar-1b was 97.2 min and the dimming was 25.0 mmag. Happy May Day to all THO fb group members!
A rare week in April. Seven consecutive clear nights. The dark moment of the night still lasted so long that the light curves of the exoplanet transits could be well measured. During the week (April 14 – April 20, 2021), the Taurus Hill Observatory measured the light curves of nine different exoplanets. For two nights, […]
The target exoplanet was the TESS satellite candidate TOI1455.01b. The timing of the transit was about an hour earlier than predicted, so the transit was close to not being included in the light curve. The measured length of the transit was 143 min, which is about 30 min shorter than predicted. The dimming caused by […]
The clear weather that lasted for a few nights last week made it possible to make observations at the Härkämäki Observatory. With the observation deck of Celestron, a light curves of seven different exoplanets were observed from 7 to 10 December 2020. The SBIG ST-8XME CCD camera with a photometric R-filter was used for the […]
