AltaiPony - Flare science in Kepler, K2 and TESS light curves
Journal of Open Source Software
Flares are unmistakeable signs of stellar magnetic activity, and a key to our understanding of stellar properties and evolution. They are violent explosions that penetrate all layers of a star's atmosphere, and enhance its overall brightness by up to orders of magnitude within minutes. We observe flares as distinct signatures in time series of stellar photometric observations that we call light curves. Flaring rates and energies provide unique insights into the nature of the stars that producedoi:10.21105/joss.02845 fatcat:3hkjwtuwrfgxdhqgbpidxgvdru
