Campaign 3 data processing complete

News article posted on by Geert Barentsen

Data processing for K2 Campaign 3 is now complete and the pixel files are in the process of being transferred to the MAST archive. We anticipate that the data will become available to the public by July 15, 2015. This data release will include both pixel level data and project created light curves. As for previous campaigns, there will be no proprietary period for using or publishing K2 data.

The Campaign 3 target list included 16,375 standard long cadence and 55 standard short cadence targets. In addition we have included large pixel masks over dwarf planet (225088) 2007 OR10, the planet Neptune and its moon Nereid.
