TrES-5, a massive hot Jupiter that transits the star GSC 03949-00967 every 1.48 days. From the spectroscopy of the star an effective stellar temperature of 5,171 +/- 36 K is estimated, and photometry of the high-precision transit B, R and Continue Reading


TrES-3b is an extrasolar planet located approximately 1300 light-years away orbiting the star GSC 03089-00929. It has an orbital period of only 31 hours and is experiencing orbital decay from tidal effects. It has almost twice the mass of Jupiter. Continue Reading


TrES-2b (or Kepler-1b) is an extrasolar planet orbiting the star GSC 03549-02811 located 750 light-years away. The planet’s mass and radius indicate that it is a gas giant with a global composition similar to Jupiter. Unlike Jupiter, but similar to Continue Reading


TrES-1 is an extrasolar planet, orbiting the star GSC 02652-01324 in the constellation Lyra. It is located about 500 light-years from Earth. Due to its mass and radius the planet is quite possibly a Jovian Planet, with a composition similar Continue Reading
