I think all IAU-approved proper names should be put in front of the designations so they show up in the name tag. Currently this is true for stars, in line with the default stars, but not the planets.

Planet temperatures are calculated by the following.
Spoiler

Code: Select all

`// Get sudarsky class + albedo.double L_star = CalculateLuminosity();for (int i = 0; i < PlanetList.Count; i++){    // Determine planet equilibrium temperature.    Planet P = PlanetList[i];    if (!PlanetList[i].Param.Temp.Measured || PlanetList[i].MoonList.Count > 0)    {        double numerator = (L_star);        if (PlanetList[i].Param.BondAlbedo.Measured)      numerator *= (1 - PlanetList[i].Param.BondAlbedo.value);        double denominator = 16 * Constants.σ * Math.PI * Math.Pow(PlanetList[i].Param.Orbit.a.ConvertTo(Unit.Meter), 2);        double Teq = Math.Pow(numerator / denominator, 1.0 / 4.0);        if (!P.Param.Temp.Measured)      P.Param.Temp = new Measurement(Teq.ToString(), Unit.Kelvin);        // Add it for moons now.        for (int j = 0; j < PlanetList[i].MoonList.Count; j++)        {      if (!PlanetList[i].MoonList[j].Param.Temp.Measured)             PlanetList[i].MoonList[j].Param.Temp = new Measurement(Teq.ToString(), Unit.Kelvin);        }    } } `

Stellar luminosity is calculated by
Spoiler

Code: Select all

`        public double CalculateLuminosity()        {            double R = Param.Radius.ConvertTo(Unit.Kilometer) * 1000; // meters.            double T = Param.Temp.value; // K.            double L = 4 * Math.PI * Math.Pow(R, 2) * Constants.σ * Math.Pow(T, 4);            return L;        }`

Then, giant planet textures are assigned through the following, respecting the temperature transitions given by Sudarsky, et al (2000).
Spoiler

Code: Select all

`if (Param.Mass.Measured && Param.Mass.ConvertTo(Unit.EarthMass) > 3000) // Only if we have measured the mass.{    return SudarskyClass.BrownDwarf;}if (Param.Temp.ConvertTo(Unit.Kelvin) > 1500){    if (!Param.GeometricAlbedo.Measured)        Param.GeometricAlbedo = new Measurement("0.5"); // Celestia Default.    return SudarskyClass.V;     // Metal/silicate clouds.}if (Param.Temp.ConvertTo(Unit.Kelvin) > 900){    if (!Param.GeometricAlbedo.Measured)        Param.GeometricAlbedo = new Measurement("0.05"); // Celestia Default.    return SudarskyClass.IV;    // Alkali clouds.}if (Param.Temp.ConvertTo(Unit.Kelvin) > 350){    if (!Param.GeometricAlbedo.Measured)        Param.GeometricAlbedo = new Measurement("0.1"); // Celestia Default.    return SudarskyClass.III;   // Cloudless.}if (Param.Temp.ConvertTo(Unit.Kelvin) > 250){    if (!Param.GeometricAlbedo.Measured)        Param.GeometricAlbedo = new Measurement("0.75"); // Celestia Default.    return SudarskyClass.II;    // Water clouds.}if (!Param.GeometricAlbedo.Measured)    Param.GeometricAlbedo = new Measurement("0.5"); // Celestia Default for Class I.return SudarskyClass.I;         // Ammonia clouds.`

If you find an error in my code, or that the orbit parameters I am using for a particular extrasolar planet are incorrect. Definitely let me know. Another potential source of error would be a bad value for the luminosity of the star -- likely due to an incorrect radius or temperature input. The latter would unfortunately not manifest in the .stc file unfortunately.

It seems the Astronomers are referring to WD 1856 and 1586 and they mean the same star and planet system. Very strange.

Is there a way I can change what planet textures are used? It somehow reverts back and gets rid of my changes.

There wasn't a really big batch of TESS TOI's this month. A few TOI's from prior sectors were presented, a few community TOIs, and numerous TESS Community TOIs have received TOI designations, specifically those now designated TOI-2330 through 2375. So many of the "new TOIs" listed here may not be new.

Some new TESS Sector 29 and 30 planet candidates are out. For some transiting planets, the stated inclination in literature (or in the NASA Exoplanet Archive) can be a tricky thing to use. Converting it directly into sky-plane coordinates for Celestia should produce an orbit geometry that has the desired impact parameter (that is, makes the planet's orbit actually cross in front of the star, to make a genuine transiting planet). But the inclination is a derived parameter. It's calculated from the impact parameter and the radius of the star. Consequently if, say, the radius of the star is updated downward, the star could "shrink" out from under its planet orbit, resulting in a situation where the planet no longer transits in Celestia. Sometimes the inclination values are just bad entirely (NASA Exoplanet Archive has a few inclination outliers for Kepler candidates that are like i = 30 degrees). As a result, there are some transiting planetary systems in the exoplanet catalogue addon that, if you actually look into them, they don't really transit. I have modified the programme I use to generate this catalogue to start ignoring stated inclination values for transiting planets and re-calculate the inclination from the impact parameter if that value is known (and ≤ 1). Consequently, this problem should be fixed.

"Correcting" the inclinations of some transiting planets by calculating it from their stated impact parameter rather than just accepting the stated inclination.

It was a fairly decent month, with numerous updated systems and new planets. January saw the first planet discovered by CHEOPS - HD 108236 f.

In a two-planet system, if only one planet has a known inclination, then the programme I use to create this addon will assume the other's is coplanar (or set it to the average known inclination in a >2 planet system). However in a few cases, especially where there are transiting and non-transiting planets, this results in a planet that is known not to transit being rendered with a transiting orbit geometry. The newly confirmed planetary systems at HD 110113 and HD 5278 are examples. We know HD 110113 c does not transit the star as we have continuous TESS light curve coverage of its orbit, but if the planet is coplanar with the transiting planet HD 110113 b, then the c planet is put into a transiting geometry. To fix this, after missing inclinations have been assigned, the impact parameter for any planet that is known not to transit is calculated, and set to 1+(Rp/Rstar) if the prior inclination assignment results in a transiting geometry. The inclination is then re-calculated from the new impact parameter. HD 110113 c aside, Kepler-247 e and Kepler-46 c are now properly rendered as non-transiting.

HD 110113 c not transiting as it indeed shouldn't.

Up to this point, I have been using the formulae in Grant Hutchison's starorbs.xls spreadsheet to convert the orbits of planets as expressed in the literature (that is, with respect to the plane of the sky) to the ecliptic plane which Celestia uses. However, these formulae do not deal well with orbits that are missing orbital elements, such as planets discovered by Doppler spectroscopy which don't have known inclinations or ascending nodes. I have recently come aware that the technique I used to get around this was just not adequate. I have switched to an adaptation of code developed by Andrew Tribick. It seems to correctly overcome this problem.

TESS has found it's second circumbinary planet system! Also, Adams, et al updated their analysis of numerous Kepler-K2 systems, so the disposition of numerous planets has been changed. While a number of relatively anonymous EPIC ID planets have been relegated to unconfirmed, K2-299 gained a fourth planet candidate.
