We report the detection of a hot companion of η Carinae using high-resolution spectra (905-1180 A) obtained with the Far Ultraviolet Spectroscopic Explorer (FUSE) satellite. Observations were obtained at two epochs of the 2024 day orbit: 2003 June, during ingress to the 2003.5 X-ray eclipse, and 2004 April, several months after egress. These data show that essentially all the far-UV flux from η Car shortward of Lyα disappeared at least 2 days before the start of the X-ray eclipse (2003 June 29… Expand
