Exoplanetary Scratchpad

[SysBP Img]

Red dwarf system in the galactic bulge with a giant planet. First planet found with microlensing from post-event data only, not in real time and without outside assistance. The planet is eight times as massive as Jupiter and at 4 AU, well beyond the snow line, but is too large for being as close as it is (which are thought to be 7 AU for a red dwarf).
