Abstract

PLANET, the Probing Lensing Anomaly NETwork, is an international team conducting observations of on-going gravitational microlensing events from five sites in the southern hemisphere. Our primary goal is to detect or to put constraints on sub-stellar companions of M dwarfs from the galactic disk. We report the current status and discuss the future prospects. A 2 m robotic telescope at Dome C which would benefit from continuous coverage and dream like seeing (median of 0.27 arcsec) is currently the best option for a ground based aggressive search for Earth-mass planets in the habitable zone.
