Exoplanet HAT-P-1b - 5.10.2020 at 22.55 - 6.10.2020 at 03.21 Hankasalmi, Murtoinen Observation number 94163

Visibility Unclassified

Harri Kiiskinen, Jyväskylän Sirius

I tried to detect an exoplanet for the first time and it worked beyond expectations. At 521 light-years away, the star ADS 16402 B (HAT-P-1) orbits the hot exoplanet HAT-P-1b, slightly larger than Jupiter, with an orbital time of only 4.5 days. More than 400 images, image alignments and brightness measurements of the object itself and a couple of reference stars with the HOPS program and a curve like this were created from it.

Hieno havainto! Tuo HOPS on kyllä käyttäjäystävällinen softa! Olethan huomannut laittaa havainnon Arielin exoclock projektiin mukaan?

Kiitos Jarkko. HOPS oli tosiaan positiivinen yllätys. Laitoin havainnon Ariel-projektin tietokantaan jokunen päivä sitten, mutta ainakaan vielä se se ei ole ilmaantunut sivulle, lienee jonkinlainen tarkastusprosessi meneillään.
