The paper presents new photoelectric observations of the eclipsing binary
system UX Her. The data were used to derive 21 times of minima. The shape of the (O-C) curve
indicates the presence of the third body in the system. In the case
that the orbital period of the eclipsing pair is constant the following
elements were obtained:
P3 = 69±5 years, e3 = 0.46 and
f(m3) = 0.0034 M☉. The minimum mass of the third body was
estimated as 0.3 M☉.
