Abstract: Portions of four planetary transits of HD 209458 were observed using the Fine Guidance Sensors (FGS) onboard the Hubble Space Telescope (HST). The combined data were fit with a transit model, yielding a determination of the stellar radius R* = 1.17 ± 0.03 R, the planetary radius Rp = 1.43 ± 0.04 RJ, and the orbital inclination i = 86.1o ± 0.1o.
