News article posted on by Geert Barentsen

The pipeline-processed data for K2 Campaign 17 are now available for download from the K2 data archive at MAST.

Campaign 17 provided a substantial overlap with Campaign 6, offering a longer baseline for stellar activity, asteroseismology, and AGN studies, as well as enabling dozens of K2 planet candidates to be revisited.

The target list featured more than 34,000 targets, including 3,000+ candidate M dwarf stars, 10,000+ candidate FGK main-sequence stars, and 14,000+ galaxies. Notable short cadence targets included dozens of planet systems, 67 variable white dwarfs, 47 cool flare stars, and 17 bright solar-type stars.

As a reminder: users are strongly encouraged to contact, cite, and collaborate with the teams who proposed the observations, as listed on the Approved Progams & Targets page.
