[117.01] The 1998 PLANET Gravitational Microlensing Season

The Probing Lensing Anomalies NETwork is an international collaboration that makes coordinated observations of on-going graviational microlensing events from four sites in the southern hemisphere. One of our primary goals is to detect planets around other stars from their microlensing effect. During the 1998 bulge observing season we intensely monitored numerous microlensing events; one event was observed more than 500 times at I and 200 times at V. The frequency and general quality of our photometry gives us excellent sensitivity to second order gravitational microlensing effects (such as those due to the presence of a planet).
