System Parameters for Kepler 6b
6b data 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 6b light curve
The detrended light curve for Kepler-6. The time series for the entire data set is plotted in the upper panel. The lower panel shows the photometry folded by the 3.234719 day period. The model fit to the transit is overplotted in red (vertical axis on the left), and our attempt to fit a corresponding occultation for a circular orbit is shown in green with the expanded and offset scale on the right.
