Abstract

We present the discovery of Qatar-7b-a very hot and inflated giant gas planet orbiting close to its parent star. The host star is a relatively massive main-sequence F-star with mass and radius M = 1.41 ± 0.03 M and R = 1.56 ± 0.02 R , respectively, at a distance d = 726 < 26 pc, and an estimated age ∼1 Gyr. With its orbital period of P = 2.032 days, the planet is located less than five stellar radii from its host star and is heated to a high temperature T eq ≈ 2100 K. From a global solution to the available photometric and radial velocity observations, we calculate the mass and radius of the planet to be M P = 1.88 ± 0.25 M J and R P = 1.70 ± 0.03 R J , respectively. The planet radius and equilibrium temperature put Qatar-7b in the top 6% of the hottest and largest known exoplanets. With its large radius and high temperature, Qatar-7b is a valuable addition to the short list of targets that offer the best opportunity for studying their atmospheres through transmission spectroscopy.
