We report the discovery of EPIC 201702477b, a transiting brown dwarf in a long period (40.73691 ±0.00037 day) and eccentric (e = 0.2281 ±0.0026) orbit. This system was initially reported as a planetary candidate based on two transit events seen in K2 Campaign 1 photometry and later validated as an exoplanet candidate. We confirm the transit and refine the ephemeris with two subsequent ground-based detections of the transit using the Las Cumbres Observatory Global Telescope 1 m telescope...[Show more]
