System Parameters for Kepler 5b
Kepler 5b Table
A: Based primarily on the photometry.
B: Based on the photometry and radial velocities.
C: Based on spectrum analysis (FIES/MOOG or HIRES/SME).
D: Based on the Yale-Yonsei evolution tracks.
E: Based on Newton’s version of Kepler’s Third Law.
F: Assumes Bond albedo = 0.1 and complete redistribution.

Kepler 5b light curve
The phased light curve of Kepler-5 containing 12 transits observed by Kepler between 1 May and 15 June 2009. The upper panel shows the full 44-day time series after detrending. The bottom panel shows the light curve folded with the orbital period. The lower curve shows the transit, with the fitted transit model overplotted in red and corresponding scale to the left. The upper curve covers the expected time of occultation, with the fitted model overplotted in green and corresponding scale found to the right, expanded by a factor of 5 relative to the scale for the transit data
