"An Introduction To Studying And Observation of Exoplanets" book is published

This book is a brief study for observation and analyzing Exoplanets. More concentration for collecting this book was related to answering some amateur astronomer’s daily needs and give more knowledge about Exoplanets structure and a short history for their formation(historical view) for every person who likes know about them.

IOTA/ME And CUMO University Joint Workshop on Binary stars and Exoplanets

This workshop was held in the physics department of the CUMO university in 3 days Officially started in 21feb and finished at 23feb (2016). The first day of the binaries and exoplanets workshop was started with observation program on an Exoplanet using the University observatories 60cm Telescope. At the second day 12 papers (6 from Iranian participants and 6 from Turkish participants) Been Presented in-front of the President of the Physics Faculty, Students, Professors and The administrators of the National observatory of Turkey. And in the last day of the workshop Assigned to Data Analyzing of the Transit Noted from the Observed Exoplanet.

Introducing TTV project in Iota Middle East

Introducing TTV project in Iota Middle East

Planet detection from transit timing variations is a method for determining the existence and properties of a planet from the gravitational perturbations it induces on the orbit of another, transiting planet. In an unperturbed planetary system consisting of a star and a planet, the two bodies revolve around their center of mass in a Keplerian orbit. If in this system the planet transits the star, it will cross the disk of the star at same time during each transit. If because of some external perturbation (e.g., a second planet) the motion of the transiting planet deviates from purely Keplerian, the time of the mid-transit will be different from one orbit to another. This is known as transit timing variation (TTV). (Haghighipour, Nader. "Planet Detection: Transit Timing Variation", 2014)
A group in Iota Middle East is working on this project in collaboration with groups in other countries. We all will be glad if other enthusiastic researchers or groups join us in this exoplanetary project.
