An international team of astronomers reports the discovery of a new eclipsing binary system using NASA’s Kepler spacecraft during its prolonged mission known as K2. The system, designated EPIC 216747137, appears to be a post-common-envelope binary (PCEB) of HW Virginis class. The finding is detailed in a paper published October 26 on

Eclipsing binaries (EBs) are systems showing regular light variations due to one of the stars passing directly in front of its companion. Among PCEBs, HW Virginis stars are a specific type of EBs consisting of a hot subdwarf primary with an M-dwarf companion.

Recently, a high number of new HW Virginis systems have been discovered from the light curves of the OGLE and ATLAS projects. Astronomers expect even more detections of such systems using NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS). Expanding the sample of known HW
