  exoplanets: One more exoplanet   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-17)
The longer the period, the larger the separation between the planet and the parent star, therefore the easier it becomes to distinguish the feeble glow of the planet near the bright glare of the star.
The predicted separation between the planet and 14 Her is 0.14 arcsec, sufficient to make us try its detection with the adaptive optics system of the CFHT 3.60m at the summit of Mauna Kea in Hawaii.
The content in heavy chemical elements of 14 Her is rather large compared to that of the Sun.

 14 Herculis   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-17)
The circle shows the location of the class K star 14 Herculis (in the constellation Hercules).
The planet, which has a mass at least 4.6 times that of Jupiter, has one of the longer orbital periods, 4.9 years and orbits at a distance of 2.77 astronomical units from the star (416 million kilometers, 669 million miles, 53 percent that of Jupiter's distance from the Sun).
14 Herculis is a seventh magnitude star (6.67, just over the line) at a distance of 59 light years.

 14 Herculis
The heavy element abundance of 14 Herculis is greater than that of the Sun and the discovery that it has a massive planet lends support to the idea that such large worlds tend to form in heavy element enriched environments.
The planetary companion of 14 Herculis has a mass almost five times that of Jupiter and moves in an eccentric orbit about its host star with a period of 4.9 years.
The discovery of second possible planet around 14 Herculis was announced in 2005.

 Extrasolar Planets - 14 Herculis
14 Herculis is smaller than our sun, emitting only 75% of its light.
Even though 14 Herculis b has half the orbital radius of Jupiter, it is warmed only to -140°C. Ice crystals in the upper cloud layers may give it a blueish colour, similar to Neptune.
But 14 Herculis b is more than thrice as massive than Jupiter, and this has drastic implications for its immediate environment.

 14 Herculis
It lies in the northwestern corner (16:10:24.3+43:49:3.5, ICRS 2000.0) of Constellation Hercules -- west of Sigma Herculis; south of Tau, Phi, and Nu Herculis; northwest of Eta Herculis and globular cluster M13; and east of Chi Herculis.
14 Herculis is an orange-red main-sequence dwarf star of spectral and luminosity type K0 V. The star may have 79 percent of Sol's mass (Observatoire de Genève), 88 percent of its diameter (Johnson and Wright, 1983, page 685), and 75 percent of its luminosity.
This object moves around 14 Herculis at an average separation of 2.81 AUs, which would be within the Main Asteroid Belt in the Solar System.

14 Herculis has a mass of 79% of our Sun (Sol), 88% of the Sol's diameter, 75% of its luminosity and measures an estimated 4830C (5200 Kelvin).
I was browsing Celestia (an interactive real-time, 3D astronomy program), and after some exploration, came across 14 Herculis, I prefered it's secondary name Gliese 614, and decided it would fit nicely.
It has an apparent magnitude (v) of 6.67, it also has 2 planets: 14 Herculis B & 14 Herculis C. It's nearest star system is Wo 9564 / Gl 626.2, which is 7.6 light years away.

 Towns in Germania Inferior: Castra Herculis (Arnhem-Meinerswijk)
The "fort of Hercules" (Castra Herculis), mentioned on the Peutinger map and by the Roman author Ammianus Marcellinus, was situated near the bifurcation of the Rhine and the Canal of Drusus.
It may owe its name to Magusanus, the Batavian supreme god, who had a large shrine (visible from Castra Herculis) at nearby Elst, and was often identified with the Roman Hercules.
Castra Herculis was almost certainly intended as a Roman bulwark at the entrance of the Canal of Drusus, which connected the rivers Rhine and IJssel and was dug by Roman soldiers at the end of the first century BCE.

 ASP: More Than Just a Planet, It's a Meal
There is some evidence that the remaining extrasolar planets split into two subgroups, though there is still a chance that we may be misled by the small size of the sample.
One subset -- those around the stars 70 Virginis, 16 Cygni B, 14 Herculis, HD 114762, and Gliese 876 -- is notable for the large eccentricity of the planet orbits.
For a Saturn-like planet that carries fewer heavy elements, the maximum enrichment could be 14%, so that its consumption would probably not contaminate the star enough to be recognized.

 d20 Modern adventure: Foul Weather
Foul Weather is an adventure for 5th-level characters by Mike McArtor that explores the many dangers of deep space -- even for those accustomed to dealing with it.
In the late 20th century, a planet of roughly Jupiter's mass was identified in the system of a class G star called 14 Herculis.
In the mid-21st century, as technology improved, astronomers discovered that the system also contained a collection of smaller planets, at least one of which might be habitable by humans.

 [No title]
It is not clear what criteria were used to select precisely these 14 stars from the list, other than the desire to find a resemblance to the Hill map.
If we were to agree that C must represent the possible combinations of 46 stars taken 14 at a time, then log2C would be 37.8 bits; this would be far more than enough to kill the proposed inference.
Realizing that the size of this factor alone will cause SS to be negative and wipe out his argument, he makes a number of ad hoc adjustments based essentially on his interpretation of the internal logic of the Hill map, and SF somehow gets reduced to only 3.9 bits.

 Extrasolar Planet Announcements
We've essentially seen the shadow of the planet and used it to measure the planet's size." The star HD 209458 is 47 parsecs (153 light years or 1.4 million billion kilometers or 859,000 billion miles) away in the constellation of Pegasus, and is about the same age, color and size as our own Sun.
Let us describe our recent discovery: A GIANT PLANET WITH A LONG PERIOD 14 Herculis (Gliese 614) is a star somewhat less massive than our Sun (its mass is only 80% that of our Sun) and lies at a distance of 60 light-years as derived from the very precise HIPPARCOS astrometric satellite parallax.
This led the team to conclude that the star has a companion in a 40-day orbit and, from the size of the velocity variation and the mass of the star (almost identical to the Sun), they calculated that the companion must be slightly more massive than the planet Jupiter.

 PHOTOMETRY OF 68 HERCULIS - McJunkins
A light curve of the Beta Lyrae type eclipsing binary star 68 Herculis is presented, based on 480 photoelectric measurements made at the Texas AandM observatory.
It was discovered to be variable by J. Schmidt in 1869, and was found to be an eclipsing binary in 1909 by Baker.
We took measurements of 72 Herculis in the V band for use as a check star for 59 Herculis and our measurements do not show evidence of variability.

 Hercules (constellation) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Mu Herculis is 27.4 light years from Earth.
The solar apex, i.e., the point on the sky which marks the direction that the Sun is moving in its orbit around the center of the Milky Way, is located within Hercules, close to Vega in neighboring Lyra.
A traditional authentic orientation is with the head as α Herculis, because Ras Algethi literally means "head of the kneeling one." The left hand then points towards Lyra from his shoulder (Delta Herculis), and Beta Herculis forms his other shoulder.

This magnetically cleared opening provides a safe haven for the most closely orbiting of the extrasolar planets, but it's not wide enough to explain the stability of planets with orbits wider than that of Mercury.
These include the planets circling 14 Herculis, 70 Virginis, and 16 Cygni B. For these bodies, other phenomena may have brought migration to a halt.
In part, it may be a simple matter of timing.
