Abstract (from CDS):

We report the discovery of a new ultrashort period hot Jupiter from the Next Generation Transit Survey. NGTS-6b orbits its star with a period of 21.17 h, and has a mass and radius of 1.330+0.024–0.028MJ and 1.271+0.197–0.188RJ, respectively, returning a planetary bulk density of 0.711+0.214–0.136 g cm–3. Conforming to the currently known small population of ultrashort period hot Jupiters, the planet appears to orbit a metal-rich star ([Fe/H] = +0.11 ± 0.09 dex). Photoevaporation models suggest the planet should have lost 5 per cent of its gaseous atmosphere over the course of the 9.6 Gyr of evolution of the system. NGTS-6b adds to the small, but growing list of ultrashort period gas giant planets, and will help us to understand the dominant formation and evolutionary mechanisms that govern this population.
