8A60.u1 - ExoPlanets - Transit Method
Demonstrate observation techniques for finding new plantary solar systems
Make sure to use the vented PVC standoff for the Sun globe and immediately turn on the sun and the exoplanets as they both take time to heat up to be visible to the thermal camera. The white planet is visible in normal light and is cold while the black planet is visible in IR and is hot and the whole sun globe is hot and visible. Operation of the demo is done in the lecture hall with all the room lights turned off.
