Transit Simulator: This flash animation shows how one can detect a transiting exoplanet using photometry through seeing the dip in light received from the host star per unit time as the planet passes between the observer and the parent star. This program also allows the user to adjust the radius of the planet to see the effect on the light received. ~ by Spencer
