Description

We present ground-based high-precision observations of the transit of WASP-17b using the multiband photometer ULTRACAM on ESO's New Technology Telescope (NTT) in the context of performing transmission spectrophotometry of this highly inflated exoplanet. Our choice of filters (SDSS u′, g′ and r′ bands) is designed to probe for the presence of opacity sources in the upper atmosphere. We find evidence for a wavelength dependence in the planet radius in the form of enhanced absorption in the SDSS...[Show more]
