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 in 2001 and in 2011, a transit was identified. Its orbit has a high eccentricity, 0.9336, 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., determining characteristics of its atmosphere using its light curve. Characteristics:
