Astronomers: Exoplanet Watch Needs You!

From NASA's Exoplanet Watch Team:

Dear Astronomers,
We are writing to invite you to participate in Exoplanet Watch, a new exoplanet citizen science project funded by NASA’s Universe of Learning and led by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

Exoplanet Watch relies on university astronomy students and amateur astronomers using ground-based telescopes to make observations of transiting exoplanets. This will help keep mid-transit times fresh. With more accurate timing, large observatories and space-based telescopes can make efficient use of valuable telescope time.

The Exoplanet Watch website lists nightly observation targets, but any exoplanet transit observations will work. 
Light curves generated by Exoplanet Watch are shared with the American Association of Variable Star Observers (AAVSO) and observers and data analysts are given credit for their work in any scientific papers resulting from their contributions.

For more information about Exoplanet Watch, visit our website at

Join our Slack Workspace to meet our team and ask questions.

We look forward to studying exoplanets with you!
