Nearby transiting hot Jupiter (0.5 MJ, 1 RJ, 4 day period). The star is in between an Orange and Red Dwarf (K7/M1, 0.59 MS). Only the second known red dwarf known to host a transiting Hot Jupiter, and much closer than the other one. Produces one of the largest transiting depths, warranting future observation. It may be orbiting perpendicular to the rotation of its star.
