    I have just noticed this paper

    https://arxiv.org/abs/1903.07716

    Martin Fowler who is speaking at the BAA meeting next Wednesday is a co-author

    This white paper advocates for the creation of a community-wide program to maintain precise mid-transit times of exoplanets that would likely be targeted by future platforms. Given the sheer number of targets that will require careful monitoring between now and the launch of the next generation of exoplanet characterization missions, this network will initially be devised as a citizen science project — focused on the numerous amateur astronomers, small universities and community colleges and high schools that have access to modest sized telescopes and off-the-shelf CCDs.”

    I suggest that you send this to Roger for the “literature watch” section of the news letter.  Although I started that idea, others’ contributions are always welcome.

    Declaration of ulterior motive: anything which makes my life easier …

    Hi Paul,

    I posted it here because it is time critical (The BAA meeting on Wednesday)

    Cheers

    Thanks for that Robin. Too jet-lagged to make the BAA mtg but will take a look at the paper you mention.

    Robin – glad you saw the paper on the Exoplanet Timing Survey to which I was invited to contribute; it’s an exciting proposal. I briefly covered the use of the MicroObservatory for observing exoplanets in my talk on Wednesday and I’ve written a piece for the Observers’ Forum which I hope should appear soon.
