Description

There are very few known exoplanets on wide orbits with directly measured masses. The mass constraints are important to inform planet formation and evolution theories. I will discuss single microlensing planet for which satellite data from K2 Campaign 9 exist. The challenges posed by K2 bulge data reduction will be discussed.
