Abstract: We report the discovery of a new transiting extrasolar planet, HAT-P-55b . The planet orbits a V ¼ 13:207 0:039 sun-like star with a mass of 1:013 0:037 M⊙, a radius of 1:011 0:036 R⊙, and a metallicity of 0:03 0:08. The planet itself is a typical hot Jupiter with a period of 3:5852467 0:0000064 days, a mass of 0:582 0:056 MJ and a radius of 1:182 0:055 RJ. This discovery adds to the increasing sample of transiting planets with measured bulk densities, which is needed to put constraints on models of planetary structure and formation theories.
