The title compound, C15H13NO, has two crystallographically independent mol-ecules in the asymmetric unit which differ principally in the periplanar angle formed by the benzene and pyridine rings [41.41 (3) and 17.92 (5)°]. The mol-ecules exhibit an E conformation between the keto group with respect to the olefin double bond.
