Detection of Period Variations in OGLE-TR-111b

Detection of Period Variations in OGLE-TR-111b

From the Extrasolar Planets Encyclopaedia
DIAZ R., ROJO P., MELITA M., HOYER S., MINNITI D., MAUAS P. & RUIZ M.-T. , 2008 (update : 09 May 2008)

Detection of Period Variations in Extrasolar Planetary Companion OGLE-TR-111b

ApJ. Letters , - , -

submitted

So, perhaps OGLE-TR-111 c? Another planet might be capable of producing the variations. I have no access to the paper, so I can't say one way or the other.

Ah, finally the paper. They propose an Earth-mass planet could be altering the orbit, and that radial velocity measurements do not rule out such a possibility. I would be curious though about what kind of precision we could expect for such a star as OGLE-TR-111.

Detection of period variations in extrasolar transiting planet OGLE-TR-111b

Abstract wrote: Two consecutive transits of planetary companion OGLE-TR-111b were observed in the I band. Combining these observations with data from the literature, we find that the timing of the transits cannot be explained by a constant period, and that the observed variations cannot be originated by the presence of a satellite. However, a perturbing planet with the mass of the Earth in an exterior orbit could explain the observations if the orbit of OGLE-TR-111b is eccentric. We also show that the eccentricity needed to explain the observations is not ruled out by the radial velocity data found in the literature.

Interesting. I wonder if such an Eart-sized object lies in outer orbit either in trojan configuration with planet "b".

According to the latest revision on arXiv, the paper has been withdrawn by the authors.

Once the claimed a possible outer planet at 0.11 AUs. But then no more updates....

There is a paper from 2005 about a possible second planet in that system -- http://arxiv.org/abs/astro-ph/0501440
