Abstract: Long-period transiting exoplanets provide an opportunity to study themass-radius relation and internal structure of extrasolar planets. Theirstudies grant insights into planetary evolution akin to the Solar Systemplanets, which, in contrast to hot Jupiters, are not constantly exposed to theintense radiation of their parent stars. Observations of secondary eclipsesallow investigations of exoplanet temperatures and large-scale exo-atmosphericproperties. In this short paper, we elaborate on, and calculate, probabilitiesof secondary eclipses for given orbital parameters, both in the presence andabsence of detected primary transits, and tabulate these values for the fortyplanets with the highest primary transit probabilities.
