          Description The rapidly pulsating eclipsing binary NY Virginis has a period of 0.1 days. On a much longer timescale of 7.9 years, the system exhibits small amplitude cyclic variations which are associated with a third body in the system. A recent paper by Qian et. al. claims that this body is a giant circumbinary planet orbiting NY Vir at a distance of 3.3 astronomical units. There might be another planet in this system with an even longer orbital period, probably more than 15 years. This planet was discovered by Song et al. 2019. This was a ground based discovery. The parameters listed here are those reported by Song et al. 2019 and were imported into the Open Exoplanet Catalogue from the NASA Exoplanet Archive.
