Аннотация

We consider the issue of excessive TTV noise observed for the exoplanet HD 189733 b. Trying to explain it through the host star photospheric activity, we model the stellar surface brightness as a random field, then characterize statistical properties of the resulting transit signal perturbation and compute individual corrections to transit timings uncertainties. We find that possible effect of the photospheric brightness field can explain only a minor portion (∼10 s) of the observed (∼70 s) TTV excess of HD 189733, suggesting that the rest should be attributed to other sources. Regarding the photospheric pattern, we place an upper limit of ∼0.01 on the combination ϵcellrcell, where ϵcell is the relative magnitude of brightness variations, and rcell is the geometric cellularity scale (relative to star radius).
