K2 Campaign 6 long cadence data available

News article posted on by Geert Barentsen

Long cadence target pixel files and light curves for K2 Campaign 6 are now available for download from the K2 data archive at MAST.

The short cadence data will follow in approximately two weeks, to allow the pixel calibration issue that we described last week to be resolved.

The Campaign 6 target list contained 28,289 long cadence and 84 short cadence targets. We also included large pixel masks to cover the trajectories of 65 Trojan Asteroids.

We strongly encourage users to read the Campaign 6 data release notes.
