HATS-8b is a low density transiting super-Neptune discovered as part of the HATSouth project. The planet orbits its solar-like G-dwarf host (V = 14.03 ± 0.10 ?> , T eff ?> = 5679 ± 50 ?> K) with a period of 3.5839 ?> days. HATS-8b is the third lowest-mass transiting exoplanet to be discovered from a wide-field ground-based search, and with a mass of 0.138 ± 0.019 ?> M J ?> it is approximately halfway between the masses of Neptune and Saturn. However, HATS-8b has a radius of 0.873 - 0.075 + 0…
