When observing the blazars, we identified a new eclipsing binary GSC 03517-00663. The light curves of GSC 03517-00663 are typical EW-type light curves. Based on the observation using the 1m telescope at Weihai Observatory of Shandong University, complete VRI light curves were determined. Then, we analyzed the multiple light curves using the W-D program. It is found that GSC 03517-00663 has a mass ratio of q=0.164 and a contact degree of f=69.2%. GSC 03517-00663 is a deep, low mass ratio overcontact binary. The light curves of GSC 03517-00663 show strong O’Connell effect, it was explained by employing a dark spot on the secondary component.
