Abstract (from CDS):

We report on the detection of a transit of the super-Earth 55Cnce with warm Spitzer in IRAC's 4.5µm band. Our MCMC analysis includes an extensive modeling of the systematic effects affecting warm Spitzer photometry, and yields a transit depth of 410 ±63ppm, which translates to a planetary radius of 2.08+0.16–0.17R as measured in IRAC 4.5µm channel. A planetary mass of 7.81–0.53+0.58M is derived from an extensive set of radial-velocity data, yielding a mean planetary density of 4.78–1.20+1.31g/cm3. Thanks to the brightness of its host star (V=6, K=4), 55Cnce is a unique target for the thorough characterization of a super-Earth orbiting around a solar-type star.
