ADC_Keywords: Planetary nebulae ; Photometry ; Radial velocities Keywords: planetary systems - techniques: photometry - techniques: radial velocity Abstract: The pioneer space mission for photometric planet searches, CoRoT, steadily monitors about 12000 stars in each of its fields of view. Transit candidates can be detected early in the processing of the data and before the end of a run of observation. We report the detection of the first planet discovered by CoRoT and characterizing it with the help of follow-up observations. Description: Raw data were filtered from outliers and residuals at the orbital period of the satellite. The orbital parameters and the radius of the planet were estimated by best fitting the phase folded light curve with 34 successive transits. Doppler measurements with the SOPHIE spectrograph permitted us to secure the detection against binaries and to estimate the mass of the planet. ******************************************************************** * * * The individual photometric measurements will * * be available after the proprietary period of * * the CoRoT project. * * See for more information * * * ******************************************************************** Objects: ----------------------------------------------------------------- RA (2000) DE Designation(s) ----------------------------------------------------------------- 06 48 19.17 -03 06 07.7 CoRoT-exo 1 = 2MASS J06481917-0306077 ----------------------------------------------------------------- File Summary:
