The exoplanet WASP-98b was discovered by C. Hellier and colleagues in 2013. During the first year of Gaia observations the host star passed through Gaia's field of view. Out of 20 samples examined, one occured during a transit. The light curves shown are from the red photometry (RP), blue photometry (BP), and Gaia (G) bands.

These light curves are folded by the known period of 2.96264 days and shifted to zero transit phase.
