From a joint fit of these data we determine that EBLM J0555-57 consists of a sun-like primary star that is eclipsed by a low-mass companion, on a weakly eccentric 7.8-day orbit. Using a mass estimate for the primary star derived from stellar models, we determine a companion mass of 85±4MJup (0.081M) and a radius of 0.84+0.14-0.04RJup (0.084R) that is comparable to that of Saturn. EBLM J0555-57Ab has a surface gravity logg2=5.50+0.03-0.13 and is one of the densest non-stellar-remnant objects currently known. These measurements are consistent with models of low-mass stars. Description: The data is composed of one TRAPPIST photometric timeseries, two EULER photometric timeseries (one large-aperture observation of A and B components combined, one small-aperture observation of A component) and one set of CORALIE radial velocities. They provide evidence of a low mass star eclipsing EBLM J0555-57A.
