The Transits of Exoplanets

Summary
A tiny percentage of exoplanets can be detected transiting—or passing in front of—their host stars. Combined with Doppler shifts, transits provide information about a planet’s size, mass, density, and likely composition. Learn how ambitious amateur astronomers can use this detection technique in their own backyards..
