Microlensing Planets In the NewsEdit

Sample (Year)Edit

Example Systems Edit

  • OGLE-2003-BLG-235L System - A red dwarf around which the first planet discovered through microlensing was detected in 2004, shattering planetary distance records. It took a few years to actually image the star itself (by Hubble).
  • OGLE-2005-BLG-071L System - Template:OGLE-2005-BLG-071L System
  • OGLE-2005-BLG-169L System - Contains the second discovered icy Super-Earth or Neptunian. This planet was detected via the Microlense technique.
  • OGLE-2005-BLG-390L System - Has first discovered Icy Super Earth, which was detected via Micro-lensing tens of thousands of light years away and was the smallest known exoplanet around a normal star at the time.
  • OGLE-2006-BLG-109L System - The first multi-planet system discovered via microlensing. Contains a Jupiter and Saturn analog, the first such system discovered in positions predicted by classical theories of solar system formation. The planets are inclined to each other.
  • MOA-2007-BLG-192L System - A very dim Red Dwarf star (once thought to be a potential Brown Dwarf) around which the smallest known exoplanet around a normal star (1.4 ME, once thought to be 3.3 ME) orbits. Orbiting at Venus-like distances, the planet is likely an icy frozen super-Earth.
