We present observations of the transit of an exoplanet from the WASP-2 star carried out with the MTM-500 telescope at the Crimean Astrophysical Observatory of the Russian Academy of Sciences. A brief history of the discovery of exoplanet WASP-2b is considered. The main characteristics are outlined. The observations and a processing procedure are described. Analysis of the obtained results was performed and compared with information from the ETD and NASA Exoplanet Archive databases. The photometry data of the WASP-2 star and the comparison star GSC 0052201406 are given in Appendix to the article.
