Flare science in Kepler, K2 and TESS light curves¶
AltaiPony finds flares in Kepler, K2, and TESS photometry. You can create a
FlareLightCurve, remove systematics and photometric variability, and search it for flares.
K2 light curves are best de-trended using k2sc_. For TESS and Kepler we employ a Savitzky-Golay filter. You can use most methods from lightkurve’s
TessLightCurve classes. AltaiPony can be used to inject and recover synthetic flare signatures. Jump to the core class is here. AltaiPony replaces the original Appaloosa (Davenport 2016).
