Abstract (from CDS):

We report the discovery of a massive (Mp=9.04±0.50 MJ) planet transiting the bright (V=8.7) F8 star HD 147506, with an orbital period of 5.63341±0.00013 days and an eccentricity of e=0.520±0.010. From the transit light curve we determine that the radius of the planet is Rp=0.982+0.038–0.105RJ. HD 147506b (also coined HAT-P-2b) has a mass about 9 times the average mass of previously known transiting exoplanets and a density of ρp~12 g/cm3, greater than that of rocky planets like the Earth. Its mass and radius are marginally consistent with theories of structure of massive giant planets composed of pure H and He, and accounting for them may require a large (≳100 M) core. The high eccentricity causes a ninefold variation of insolation of the planet between peri- and apastron. Using follow-up photometry, we find that the center of transit is Tmid=2,454,212.8559±0.0007 (HJD) and the transit duration is 0.177±0.002 days.
