Details on Acronym:   XO
   XO (Exoplanet) Write:<<XO -NNW>>
<<XO -NNa>> Object:* + Poss. Planet  (SIMBAD class: Planet_Candidate = Extra-solar Planet Candidate) Note:The XO Project is a photometric search for Jovian planets transiting very bright stars. The stars proposed typically will have GSC or 2MASS (but not HR, HD, or BD) designations, and a shorter designation than the GSC or 2MASS designation is useful. The XO project is described in 2005PASP..117..783M.
