Anglo-Australian Planet Search

Template:Use Australian English The Anglo-Australian Planet Search or AAPS is a long-term astronomical survey started in 1998 and continuing to the present. It is being carried out on the 3.9m Anglo-Australian Telescope, AAT, of the Anglo-Australian Observatory in Australia. The purpose of this survey is to catalog planets around more than 240 nearby stars of the southern hemisphere. Observations are made using the AAT and the University College London Echelle Spectrograph or UCLES. This survey uses the radial velocity method to search for extrasolar planets.[1]

Planets discovered by AAPS

This survey has announced the discovery of 27 planetary objects as of May 2009, including three multi-planet systems.
