Alert Notice 643: Monitoring for Red Dots #2 campaign

July 25, 2018: John Strachan (Ph.D. candidate, Queen Mary University of London) and Dr. Guillem Anglada-Escude (Queen Mary University of London) have requested AAVSO assistance in the monitoring of three M dwarf stars as part of the Red Dots #2 campaign.

Alert Notice 584: Monitoring of PDS 110 requested to cover upcoming eclipse by exoplanet

Note: This campaign is officially over, but the astronomers would appreciate it very much if observers could make an occasional observation of PDS 110.  EOW March 29, 2018

Note: This Alert Notice was edited to add the magnitude range of PDS 110. EOW

Alert Notice 583: Photometry requested for Red Dots campaign

June 16, 2017:  John Strachan (Queen Mary University of London) and Dr. Guillem Anglada-Escude (Queen Mary University of London) have requested AAVSO assistance in the monitoring of three M dwarf stars as part of the Red Dots campaign.

Alert Notice 571: Observations Requested of Exoplanet Proxima Centauri b

March 16, 2017: Dr. Karen Collins (Vanderbilt University) has requested ground-based, follow-up observations of recently discovered exoplanet Proxima Centauri b. This exoplanet is a suspected Earth-size planet orbiting in the habitable zone of our nearest stellar neighbor, Proxima Centauri (V645 Cen). There exists a rough ephemeris of this target based on radial velocity measurements, so the predicted mid-transit times can vary +/- 6 hours. Therefore, it is requested that observations be as long as possible.
