According to Sirius_Alpha there's a paper somewhere that effectively deconfirmed Dagon and characterized it as some dust cloud or smth.

According to Wikipedia, it was disconfirmed then reconfirmed, but is not certain to be a planet. I don't know of a more recent paper that disproves it as an object.

Great question! Basically, a third observation of the object showed that its orbit crossed the debris ring around Fomalhaut A. This gives you a dynamical constraint on the mass of the planet to being less than ~3 Earth-masses (any higher and it would have disrupted the disk). A ~3 Earth-mass planet cannot be directly imaged with current instrumentation, which demonstrates that the object that was imaged as "Fomalhaut b" must have a significant contribution from dust.

Janson, et al. (2012) pursued Fomalhaut b looking for an infrared detection, but didn't see anything, and noted
Concerning the visible-light point source, its underlying physics is unclear, but the only hypothesis that can be shown to reasonably fit all existing data is an optically thin dust cloud, which is transient or has a transient component. If this interpretation is valid, the cloud may or may not be physically bound to a central object in the super-Earth mass regime.

So now we're at the situation where we know there's probably a lot of dust at the location of "Fomalhaut b," but otherwise no real strong evidence for a planet.

Lawler, et al. (2014) calculate that asteroid collisions within the Fomalhaut disk should produce large debris clouds that we may be able to detect, and that this might be the nature of "Fomalhaut b." They write
The relatively high collision rate that we calculate here would mean that another Fom b-like object should appear within the next decade, and Fom b itself will fade over the coming years, possibly becoming resolved. In order to test these two predictions, continued follow-up observations capable of detecting objects as faint as Fom b are vital. For now, the only telescope capable of detecting Fom b is Hubble, but the upcoming James Webb Space Telescope will be able to resolve the dust cloud, and provide some additional constraints on the dust composition with near IR measurements.

As it stands now, the current status of Fomalhaut b is that there is no reason to think a planet exists there. As a result it has not been added to this addon.

Also, non tidally locked planets are defined with unrealistically long rotation periods. (This is great work otherwise!)

Thanks! I've been curious as to what to do about this. I assume all planets are in a tidal equilibrium -- pseudosynchronous rotation for eccentric fluid planets, spin-orbit resonances for solid planets. Clearly as you point out this is not the case for the vast majority of systems haven't been around long enough to reach tidal equilibrium. If I can find some rotation rate relations for planet's mass vs age, that's what I'd like to do. I've considered just extrapolating downward from the brown dwarf regime -- something that should be somewhat well characterized, but I haven't managed to find some decent research on it since I haven't kept track of brown dwarf research. For terrestrial planets, the various stochastic processes that lead to their formation give them fairly randomized rotation rates, so the only systematic is the influence of tides. This might be worth pursuing -- i.e., planets that are still reaching tidal equilibrium being represented in some sort of intermediate rotation regime. But since the initial rotation rate is random, how do you calculate this?

Unless there's some alternative -- and I'm open to suggestions, for sure -- I figure the tidal equilibrium rotation rate makes the most sense as a "default," at least until I can get some decent mass-age-rotation relations for giant planets.

Re Fomalhaut b:

So the Wikipedia article is incorrect then? Someone should fix it... And why did the IAU name it without vetting it first?

Re rotation periods:

The 2013 extrasolar.ssc file uses tidal spin-down formulas from a book called "Solar System Dynamics" by CD Murray & SF Dermott. If you can get that book you could potentially use those formulas, taking the system's age into account where known. For the initial rotation period you could use the three arbitrary values from extrasolar.ssc, or try to determine it from the very small sample, or as you said to extrapolate from brown dwarfs. (Somewhat related: this is the only brown dwarf catalog I know of, but it hasn't been updated since 2015. Doesn't have rotation periods either.)

And that is why I don't use Wikipedia as a source for this.

Yeah the IAU giving names to ... let's face it, radial velocity curves... seemed premature. The IAU-named Pollux b is somewhat controversial as well (the literature has gone back and forth). I only include the proper names in the addon because I know people value such things, but they appear nowhere in the literature, and don't seem to have any interest to the wider astronomical community. "Fomalhaut b" and "Pollux b" are just fine.

Yeah! I have looked for it but haven't found it. I might be able to recover the relation from the rotation periods given in that .ssc file though.

Hi Sirius and all forum members. Hope you are all fine.

I have one suggestion.
I used, in my "educated guesses" for Celestia, the paper A UNIVERSAL SPIN-MASS RELATION FOR BROWN DWARFS AND PLANETS from Scholz et al to estimate rotation periods of planets that are beyond the tidal-locking radius of a star. It gives good insight in the matter. They explore the idea that there is a spin-mass relation for solar system planets and extra-solar planetary-mass objects (the idea itself is not new). Refer to figure 6 of the paper, where a graph is presented. Unfortunatelly they don't provide an exact equation but you can deduce it from the graph itself (I found Veq~12.8*M^0.5 Km/s, where M is in Jupiter masses).
This relation gives the final rotation velocity of the sub-stellar bodies (after their contraction). Then, by angular momentum conservation one can find the rotation velocities for other ages, by using a table that gives mass-radius-age relations. There are works from Baraffe et al in that subject:
https://www.aanda.org/articles/aa/abs/2003/17/aa3343/aa3343.html
https://www.aanda.org/articles/aa/full_html/2015/05/aa25481-14/aa25481-14.html
Unfortunatelly, the tables in these papers cover masses above 0.0005Ms (~0.524Mj). So far, I haven't found a source that covers mass-radius-age relations for masses bellow that limit. So, in my "educated guesses" I had to assume that planets bellow that limit have the same radius and rotational velocity throughout their whole lifetime.

Hope this helps.
Best regards from Brazil.

TESS Sector 16 planets are out! There are also candidates from southern hemisphere sectors that I'm guessing are continuing to be found as the data continues to be analyzed. Long-period planets in sector overlaps are being found, such as TOI-1338 for example with a ~71 day period. This update also includes KELT-5 (TOI-1414), a planetary system that has had a long road to go toward confirmation, and has taken many years because of how challenging the system is (though the details of this, I am not privy to... we're still waiting on that publication. See this page). The system remains unconfirmed, but is among the better-characterized in this released.

M. Mugrauer went through the Gaia DR2 data and use it to confirm the presence of stellar companions to numerous extrasolar planet hosts. Of particular noteworthiness is the discovery of eight white dwarf companions, which more than doubles the number of main-sequence planet hosting stars with white dwarf companions.

The orientation of stellar binary systems has been improved when there is no available data for the 3D orbit -- the overwhelming majority of cases. If a position angle is known, the system is rendered as a face-on system with the star in the correct position corresponding to the measured PA. The orbits are face-on because that's really the only way to simply use the mean anomaly to get the position of the star right, and setting it this way sets up the visual appearance of the system from Earth as it would be from a telescope.

The following is a list of extrasolar planet host stars that have been given a new stellar companion:

I wanted to work on the giant planet rotation periods problem this month, but the Mugrauer paper and the subsequent work that went into re-doing how binary stars were represented ended up taking a lot more time than I anticipated. Perhaps giant planet rotation periods will be improved in the next update.

Happy New Years, everyone. I hope you have all had a good holiday season. TESS Sector 17 and 18 planets are out!

In the last update, I implemented orbit orientations for numerous multi-stellar systems that allowed for the system to be rendered as multiple while preserving the observed position angles of the companion stars. I have gone through and done this for numerous directly imaged planets.

Systems with updated imaged planet orbits:
Spoiler
2MASS J12073346-3932539, GQ Lup, AB Pic, CHXR 73, HD 203030, HN Peg, Oph 11, UScoCTIO 108, 1RXS J160929.1-210524, CT Cha, FU Tau, GSC 06214-00210, 2MASS J04414489+2301513, HIP 78530, WISEP J045853.90+643451.9, WD 0806-661, CFBDS J145829+101343, SR 12, WISEP J121756.91+162640.2, HD 142250, HD 106906, FW Tau, ROXs 12, ROXs 42B, 2MASS J01225093-2439505, 2MASS J01033563-5515561, USco J161248.9-180052, GU Psc, HD 284149, HD 133803, 2MASS J02192210-3925225, HD 135778, VHS J125601.92-125723.9, 2MASS J22362452+4751425, TYC 9486-927-1, HD 36112, 2MASS J02495639-0557352, HD 144844

As many of you know, the IAU has released a list of formal names for a hundred extrasolar planets and their host stars. These have been implemented, but there were some challenges. Many of them contain special characters, for which some advice from SevenSpheres proved very valuable. Still there are unsupported characters that prevented the implementation of some names, specifically Naqaỹa (HD 48265 b) and Ditsö̀ (WASP-17 b). I did update the name for Ægir (ε Eri b) as well.

Rotation periods have been implemented, with all fluid planets beyond 1 AU given primordial rotation periods according to the mass-period relation given by Fafers_br from this post (and paper therein). Tidal spin-down is handled crudely at the moment: All planets with semi-major axes ≤ 1 AU are tidally locked. Rotating planets are assigned oblateness values using the same formula that was used for stars. This still needs to be improved. I would really like to see the formula that Celestia's default extrasolar.ssc used.

In any event, several extrasolar planets do have measured v sin i measurements from direct imaging: β Pic b, 2MASS J12073346-3932539 b, GU Psc b, GQ Lup b, Ross 458 (AB)b, ROXs 42B (AB)b, VHS J125601.92-125723.9. These have been implemented rather than estimated.

Happy New Year to you too!

I have a question: where are the sources for the binary star definitions? I noticed that systems like 11 Com have a full definition including all the parameters, but I can't find any reference to those orbital elements. Apologies if this was mentioned somewhere else and I haven't noticed it.

Also, a more general question. What has happened to the Sixth Orbit Catalog? I have not been able to access the original site at https://www.usno.navy.mil/USNO/astrometry/optical-IR-prod/wds/orb6 for quite some time now. But I have found this site: http://www.astro.gsu.edu/wds/orb6.html Is this the new location for the catalog?

Thanks,
Luke

As I stated in the post for the December update, if a binary system lacks 3D information, then it is rendered as face-on in order to place the companion star with the correct position angle.

I'm afraid I haven't really done a lot with the Sixth Orbit Catalog, so I don't know about your question there.

Added after 7 hours 16 minutes:
A couple systems had incorrect distances: Kepler-997 and TOI-1558. The first because I did not correctly update the parallax, the second because the distance was estimated photometrically based off just the JHK values and it ended up being a bad estimate. It's a Mira variable so the systm is almost certainly a false positive but until that gets determined by the TESS Follow-up Project, I'll keep it in here for now. Adding more photometry made the distance estimate less bad, so it's no longer ~10 light-years away.

I have attached a corrected version here. My apologies for the inconvenience. Thanks to SevenSpheres for pointing out the errors.

TESS Sector 19 planets are out! Including a possible planet candidate transiting the white dwarf LP 141-14. Also, TESS has its first confirmed ~Earth-sized habitable planet candidate at TOI-700. One of the ExoFOP candidate dumps a few months ago included TOI-1338, a system that we already knew was a circumbinary planet system from its TIC identifier. I did not realize that it was that system through when I added TOI-1338 to the add-on, and so when I discovered that the system had a TYC identifier, I of course included it, overwriting the original circumbinary system and replacing it with a single-star system. So this system has been represented as a single star in the add-on for the past couple months. My apologies on this. In any event it is fixed now.

A number of unconfirmed CoRoT planet candidates from Deleuil, et al. (2018) have been added. While they estimate spectral types for host stars, they are not very consistent with Gaia DR2 data. I have elected to go with the latter, estimating spectral types based off the star's temperature, and taking the Gaia DR2 radius where available. Eighteen of the systems do not appear to have parallax measurements, and there are a few system that appear to have been determined to be eclipsing binaries, according to SIMBAD. They have transit depths on the order of 4% anyway so I didn't question it. Two systems, CoRoT 632892278 and CoRoT 652402581 appear to be sufficiently close together in the sky that due to what I assume is an instrumental effect, they both have a planet candidate at the exact same period. Because it is not clear which of the two are the "false candidate," I've kept both.

The last update's addition of estimated rotation periods introduced a problem where Mp sin i values for planets where only a RV semi-amplitude was available would not be correctly calculated. This has been corrected.

With TESS providing high-quality visible-light phase curves of numerous bright transiting hot Jupiter systems, we're going to be getting a decent number of measured planetary albedos. With this in mind, I have implemented albedo into this exoplanet catalogue addon. For gas giant planets, this uses Celestia's default Sudarsky-class-based values from extrasolar.ssc for now. For sub-Jovian planets, I have taken albedo values from Sheets & Demming (2017). For planets with measured optical geometric albedos, the actual observed values will take precedence. As far as I know there are only a few planets with measured/constrained optical albedos: HD 209458b (Rowe, 2008), TrES-2b (Barclay, 2012), HD 189733b (Evans, 2013), Kepler-7b (Demory, 2013), Kepler-77 (Gandolfi, 2013), WASP-12b (Bell, 2017), WASP-18b (Shporer, 2018), WASP-19b (Wong, 2019) and WASP-100b (Jansen 2019). (apologies on not linking them to their respective papers. The 20 link per post limit is a pain)

A heart-felt thank-you for Fafers_br and SevenSpheres for pointing out several errors in the most recent version that were corrected here.

Sirius_Alpha: do you plan on doing "limit of knowledge" AltSurface definitions for all the planets? It's a thing that's in the original exoplanet files.

This is a most useless feature that could have been make. I deleted it in the very first versions of CO.
All the same, that all unexplored asteroids would be in the form of gray smooth balls.

I have thought about it, along with creating a companion addon with textures for extrasolar planets (based on longitudinally-resolved maps from phase curve data). But ultimately I don't know a lot about creating textures so this has been only a vague idea.

That's how my main Celestia install is set up...

TESS Sector 20 planet candidates are out! As well as a number of multi-sector candidates from Sectors 14-19.

I have re-written the programme I use to create this project. The first was much too cumbersome after so many modifications to try to expand its capabilities that it needed a rework in order to make it able to handle complex stellar systems. It is still a work in progress, but at this point it works sufficiently well that it's better than the previous programme, even if a bit less tested. As a result I spent much more time testing this than I expected to and this has delayed the March release a couple days. I apologize for the wait. I am sure there are more problems that have evaded my notice. There are still some things I need to work on, for example, making it capable of producing files that have the layout expectations for Celestia Origin.

If you are replacing an earlier version of this addon, you must remove both the old Stars_Binary_Exoplanets.stc and Exoplanets_Moons.ssc files to avoid duplicate entries. The content from both of these files is now produced programatically and therefore no longer need their own files.

There are often transiting brown dwarfs discovered through exoplanet surveys. CoRoT, Kepler, TESS have all found transiting brown dwarfs that are important to the understanding of extrasolar planets by proxy of them being low-mass, sub-stellar fluid bodies subject to many of the same physics. To this end, and for the sake of catalogue completeness, I have gone through the effort of adding a number of such transiting brown dwarfs. Specifically, I have added systems at AD 3116, CoRoT-15, CoRoT-33, CWW 89, EPIC 201702477, EPIC 212036875, Kepler-486, Kepler-492, KOI-415, KOI-607, KOI-686, KOI-959, NLTT 41135, RIK 72, TOI-503, TOI-569, TOI-1406, WASP-30 and WASP-128.

Some systems are similar to the transiting brown dwarfs in that they were "confirmed" as planets through statistical validation but later determined to be stellar objects. For the sake of some sense of completeness, I have included some such systems here. Specifically, K2-51, K2-67, and K2-76. More may be added in the future.

Yeah there shouldn't be any conflict between the two. It's based off the TYC catalogue, and any stars in this addon that have TYC ID's have the overwrite prefix to prevent duplicates.
