K2 Campaign 9 data processing complete

News article posted on by Geert Barentsen

Pipeline processing for K2 Campaign 9 is now complete and the data are in the process of being shipped to the MAST archive. We anticipate that the data will become available for download on or before September 30.

The majority of the Campaign 9 pixel budget was dedicated to a 3.7 deg² superstamp toward the Galactic bulge, designed to search for gravitational microlensing events. Owing to the unique nature of this data set, the C9 data release will only contain target pixel files. High-level derived products, such as lightcurves, are expected to be released by the C9 science team at a later date.

Keep an eye on this website for an announcement of the release and the associated data release notes.
