The orientation of a planet orbit with respect to the stellar spin axis is a powerful observable that can trace planetary migration. Hot Jupiters (HJ) orbiting cool stars (<6100 K) are more often aligned compared to those orbiting hot stars, where tides are often invoked to explain this dichotomy. Tidal ...
