Orbital Motion of the Wide Planetary-mass Companion GSC 6214-210 b: No Evidence for Dynamical Scattering

Pearce, Logan A.; Kraus, A. L.; Dupuy, Trent; Ireland, Michael; Rizzuto, Aaron C.; Bowler, Brendan P.; Birchall, Eloise


Direct-imaging exoplanet surveys have discovered a class of 5–20 MJup substellar companions at separations >100 au from their host stars, which present a challenge to planet and star formation models. Detailed analysis of the orbital architecture of these systems can provide constraints on possible formation mechanisms, including the possibility that they were dynamically ejected onto a wide orbit. We present astrometry for the wide planetary-mass companion GSC 6214-210 b (240 au; ≈14 MJup)...[Show more]
