Data processing for K2 Campaign 16 is now complete and the pixel files and lightcurves are in the process of being shipped to the data archive at MAST. We anticipate that the data release will be announced near May 24th.

The target list featured 20,647 stars alongside 9,241 galaxies for the supernova experiment. Highlights included the M44 (Beehive) and M67 clusters, dozens of exoplanets and exoplanet candidates revealed by K2 Campaign 5, and many late-type flare stars observed in short cadence.

Please keep an eye on our website for an announcement of the release and the associated data release notes.
