We present a strong case for a transiting hot Jupiter planet identified during a single-field transit survey toward the Lupus Galactic plane. The object, Lupus-TR-3b, transits a V - 17.4 K1 V host star every 3.91405 days. Spectroscopy and stellar colors indicate a host star with effective temperature 5000 ± 150 K, with a stellar mass and radius of 0.87 ± 0.04 M., and 0.82 ± 0.05 R, respectively. Limb-darkened transit fitting yields a companion radius of 0.89 ± 0.07 R, and an orbital inclination...[Show more]
