NASA Exoplanet Archive: Exoplanet Transit Survey Kepler Search

The NASA Exoplanet Archive provides access to the public Kepler light curves as they are released to the community. The primary mission archive to all Kepler data is provided by MAST at STScI . The NASA Exoplanet Archive also serves Kepler Objects of Interest (KOIs).

The Kepler Data Release Notes page includes a brief description of the files and notes on when quarters were released to the archive.

The Kepler Mission Information page contains a description of the Kepler mission, available data products, and links to other available Kepler resources.

The Kepler Time Series Program Interface provides search access to time series metadata and Kepler pipeline parameters, such as the CDPP values, detailed descriptions of which are documented here.

We recommend the Firefox, Safari or Chrome browsers.  IE users may see intermittent query failures, which can be resolved by resubmitting the query.

Retrieve Star Light Curve by ID

The star IDs for the Kepler dataset are formatted as six to eight digit integers.
Examples: 757076, 12984404
