Abstract (from CDS):

We report the discovery of an eclipsing binary system with mass-ratio q∼0.07. After identifying a periodic photometric signal received by WASP, we obtained CORALIE spectroscopic radial velocities and follow-up light curves with the Euler and TRAPPIST telescopes. From a joint fit of these data we determine that EBLM J0555-57 consists of a sun-like primary star that is eclipsed by a low-mass companion, on a weakly eccentric 7.8-day orbit. Using a mass estimate for the primary star derived from stellar models, we determine a companion mass of 85±4MJup (0.081M) and a radius of 0.84+0.14–0.04RJup (0.084R) that is comparable to that of Saturn. EBLM J0555-57Ab has a surface gravity logg2=5.50+0.03–0.13 and is one of the densest non-stellar-remnant objects currently known. These measurements are consistent with models of low-mass stars.
