Abstract (from CDS):

We present observations of the unusual microlensing event OGLE 2003-BLG-235/MOA 2003-BLG-53. In this event, a short-duration (∼7 days) low-amplitude deviation in the light curve due to a single-lens profile was observed in both the MOA (Microlensing Observations in Astrophysics) and OGLE (Optical Gravitational Lensing Experiment) survey observations. We find that the observed features of the light curve can only be reproduced using a binary microlensing model with an extreme (planetary) mass ratio of 0.0039+11–07for the lensing system. If the lens system comprises a main-sequence primary, we infer that the secondary is a planet of about 1.5 Jupiter masses with an orbital radius of ∼3 AU.
