Exoplanetary Scratchpad

[SysBP Img]

One of three systems discovered by Super WASP containing a transiting planet so close to its star that it is evaporating. Found to orbit in the same manner as its star's rotation, while 6 out of 27 planets analyzed by the WASP team were found to orbit backwards around its star in 2010. Has a candidate planet detected by the Transit Timing Variation method.
