MARVELS-1b

The MARVELS team have published the discovery of a new short-period brown dwarf candidate around the star TYC 1240-00945-1. Below is the phased radial velocity curve TYC 1240-00945-1 with the Keplerian orbit solution. The MARVELS discovery data is in blue, with confirmation data in red (HET data) and purple (SMARTS). The bottom panel shows the residuals between the data points and the orbital solution.
