Light reflecting off Planets.

    Can light reflecting off planets that pass through the back half of a stars elliptic, cause any significant changes to the collected data or is it too small to have any effect?

    Well, for a normal (small) planets the effect is too small, but for Hot Jupiters it has been observed sometimes (you see a small secondary transits).
