With the launch of TESS (Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite), follow-up ground-based observations will be an important part of the TESS process to confirm candidate exoplanets. In particular, such observations will help distinguish false positives from true exoplanet transits.

The AAVSO is pleased to announce that it is establishing a program that will facilitate the participation of its members in this process. More information on this program can be found by clicking here.
