A second step in the characterization of extrasolar planets has been achieved with the detection of the planetary thermal emission by observing the occultation-phase light curves of these objects. We use near-infrared high-cadence observations to detect the occultation and the primary transits of some southern extrasolar planets which produce a highly accurate characterization of these systems.
