Abstract (from CDS):

We report the discovery of WASP-8b, a transiting planet of 2.25±0.08MJup on a strongly inclined eccentric 8.15-day orbit, moving in a retrograde direction to the rotation of its late-G host star. Evidence is found that the star is in a multiple stellar system with two other companions. The dynamical complexity of the system indicates that it may have experienced secular interactions such as the Kozai mechanism or a formation that differs from the ``classical'' disc-migration theory.
