The VISTA Variables in the V\'ia L\'actea (VVV) survey is one of six public ESO surveys, and is now in its 4th year of observing. Although far from being complete, the VVV survey has already delivered many results, some directly connected to the inte...
We propose a public IR variability survey, named "Vista Variables in the Vía Láctea" (V V V ), of the Milky Way bulge and an adjacent section of the mid-plane where star formation activity is high. This would take 1920 hours, covering ̃ 109 point sou...

Context: A number of microlensing dark-matter surveys have produced tens of millions of light curves of individual background stars. These data provide an unprecedented opportunity for systematic studies of whole classes of variable stars and their h...
The OGLE-II event sc5_2859 was previously identified as the third longest microlensing event ever observed. Additional photometric observations from the EROS (Experience de Recherche d'Objets Sombres) survey and spectroscopic observations of the cand...
