Besides hunting from transits in a specific patch of sky, IRVEES has another goal: confirm more planets around nearby stars by Direct Imaging. I have picked out 10 target stars all within 15 light-years from Earth, but a popular and mysterious star in that group is Lalande 21185. PROJECT LALANDE With Project Lalande, the IRVEES program will use a variety of detection methods to pick up any planets. It will mostly use Direct Imaging with large scopes and a coronagraph, but the transit method can be used for other observations. There have been multiple other searches for planetary comp
TEMS (Transiting Exoplanet Moon Search) One of the main goals of the IRVEES program is to not just find exoplanets, but also exomoons. The hunt for moons of exoplanets has not gone very well. There's a group called HEK (Hunt for Exomoons with Kepler) that tries to find Transit Timing Variations (TTVs) caused by an orbiting exomoon. So far, they haven't found any. But that doesn't mean this method isn't successful; it's just the target's sizes and differences. Most of HEK's targets are either hundreds of light years away, or have dim host stars, or are rather small exoplanets. I plan to ta
This is a detailed list of exoplanets (and possibly exomoons) observed, analysed, and discovered by the IRVEES program. Some of these planets are currently known ones that have been detected for practice, or analysed to find out more information on them. Most of the planets are candidates I have found with Planet Hunters, and may stay that way for several weeks. I might post the light curves of each candidate exoplanet. STUDIED KNOWN EXOPLANETS HAT-P-22b: One of the multiple Hot Jupiter exoplanets discovered by the HATNet Project. HAT-P-22b is 2.15 times the mass of Jupiter with a d
This here is a list of the scientific achievements done by IRVEES. Here, there will be milestones and important events that the IRVEES program has gone through, along with important discoveries that don't exactly relate to exoplanets. Keep in mind that there won't be any specific exoplanet discoveries here; They will be on another forum thread. 6-14-16 Detecting the transit of HAT-P-22b and observing the star's binary companion.
