The inner planet, HD 3167 b, has a radius of 1.6R and an ultra-short orbital period of only 0.96d. The outer planet, HD 3167 c, has a radius of 2.9R and orbits its host star every 29.85 days. At a distance of just 45.8±2.2pc, HD3167 is one of the closest and brightest stars hosting multiple transiting planets, making HD 3167 b and c well suited for follow-up observations. The star is chromospherically inactive with low rotational line-broadening, ideal for radial velocity observations to measure the planets' masses. The outer planet is large enough that it likely has a thick gaseous envelope that could be studied via transmission spectroscopy. Planets transiting bright, nearby stars like HD 3167 are valuable objects to study leading up to the launch of the James Webb Space Telescope. Description: Kepler observed HD 3167 between 2016 January 3 and March 23 during Campaign 8 of its K2 mission. We observed HD 3167 with the Tillinghast Reflector Echelle Spectrograph (TRES) on the 1.5m telescope at the Fred L. Whipple Observatory on Mt. Hopkins, AZ. We acquired one spectrum with a spectral resolving power of R=44000 on 2016 July 11. We observed HD 3167 with the Robo-AO adaptive optics system installed at the 2.1m telescope at Kitt Peak National Observatory. We observed HD 3167 with an i'-band filter on 2016 July 11, taking images at a rate of 8.6Hz for a total of 120s.

Description of file: hd3167robo-ao.fits The Robo-AO image of HD 3167 in FITS. The exposure time was 120 seconds and the filter was i'-band. The image is composed of many 116ms exposures which were shifted and coadded in post-processing using HD 3167 as a tip/tilt guide star.
