Data from the first WASP public data release were acquired from 2004 to 2008 and are made available via the Exoplanet Archive by the SuperWASP consortium.
SuperWASP is the UK's leading extra-solar planet detection program comprised of a consortium of eight academic institutions. SuperWASP consists of two robotic observatories that operate continuously throughout the year, allowing coverage of both hemispheres of the sky. The first, SuperWASP-North, is located on the island of La Palma among the Isaac Newton Group (ING) of telescopes. The second, SuperWASP-South, is located at the site of the South African Astronomical Observatory (SAAO), just outside Sutherland, South Africa. The observatories each consist of eight wide-angle cameras that simultaneously monitor the sky for planetary transit events. The eight cameras allow the monitoring of millions of stars simultaneously, enabling the detection of rare transit events.
The Exoplanet Archive include nearly 18 million WASP time series, or roughly 17 terabytes (TB) of data, which is too large to view or download through a web browser. See the links below to search or download these data.
NOTE: Not all confirmed WASP planet light curves are available in the first public WASP data release, but may be included in future releases. To retrieve the currently available public WASP light curves for confirmed WASP planets, please see the Bulk Download page.
