2008ApJ...686.1331B XO-5b: A Transiting Jupiter-sized Planet with a 4 day Period Burke, Christopher J.; McCullough, P. R.; Valenti, Jeff A.; Long, Doug; Johns-Krull, Christopher M.; Machalek, P.; Janes, Kenneth A.; Taylor, B.; Fleenor, Michael L.; Foote, C. N.; Gary, Bruce L.; Garcia-Melendo, Enrique; Gregorio, J.; Vanmunster, T. Abstract. The star XO-5 (GSC 02959-00729, V=12.1, G8 V) hosts a Jupiter-sized, R_p_=1.15+/-0.12 R_J_, transiting extrasolar planet, XO-5b, with an orbital period of 4.2 days. The planet's mass, M_p_=1.15+/-0.08 M_J_, and surface gravity, g_p_=22+/-5 m s^-2^, are large for its orbital period compared to most other transiting planets. However, the deviation from the M_p_-P relationship for XO-5b is not as large as for GJ 436b, HAT-P-2b, and XO-3b. By coincidence, XO-5 overlies the extreme H I plume that emanates from the interacting galaxy pair NGC 2444/NGC 2445 (Arp 143). Key words: Galaxies: Individual: NGC Number: NGC 2444, NGC 2445, Stars: Planetary Systems, stars: individual (GSC 02959-00729)
