« Nearly Polar Orbit of a sub-Neptune »

In the last two decades, the study of exoplanets has led to many
unexpected discoveries that challenged the classical theories of planetary
systems formation and evolution. One such discovery is the presence of
misaligned systems with very large obliquity, i.e. the angle between the
spin of the planetary orbit and the the planet host star rotation. I will
talk about a sub - Neptune in a multi-planet system for which we
determined sky-projected obliquity. We used three methods to find the
sky-projected obliquity and measured a nearly polar orbit
