Astronomers discover a near-grazing transiting 'hot Jupiter'

An international group of astronomers has detected a new “hot Jupiter” exoplanet making a near-grazing transit of its host star. The newly found alien world, designated WASP-174b, is most likely similar in size and mass to Jupiter, however much hotter than our solar system’s biggest planet. The discovery is reported February 2 in a paper published on arXiv.org.
