HD 80606 b

(Struve 1341 B b, HIP 45982 b)
(hot Jupiter discovered in 2001)

HD 80606 b is a transiting hot Jupiter orbiting a G-type star star (0.9 solar masses) in a 111-day orbit. It was discovered by the radial velocity method, A transit was identified in 2011. Its orbit has a high eccentricity, .9336, varying from 0.03 to 0.88 AU. Due to the two types of observation and its high eccentricity, it is of interest for further study, e.g., its light curve to determine characteristics of its atmosphere.
