Stellar Parameters

Kepler-23b Stellar Parameters
a Sources for stellar properties. Spectroscopic are from: B11=Borucki et al. (2011), M=McDonald Observatory, N=Nordic Optical Telescope. Stellar masses and radii based on comparison to Yonei-Yale models (Demarque et al. 2004). Quoted uncertainties do not include systematic uncertainties due to stellar models.

System Parameters

Kepler-23b System Parameters
a BJD-2454900
b Updated to reflect stellar properties and dilution from Stellar Parameters listed above
c Number of transit times measured in Q0-6
d Median absolute deviation from linear ephemeris measured during Q0-6
e Based on assumption of dynamical stability and stellar mass from Stellar Parameters listed above

Light Curve

Kepler-23b Light Curve
Kepler Light curve for Kepler-23b, showing the photometry after detrending. The transit time is indicated by dots at the bottom of the panel. The superimposed light curve, after shifting by the measured mid-time, is shown.
