# FlareLightCurve¶

FlareLightCurve is the core class in AltaiPony for light curve de-trending, flare finding, and characterizing.

## Classes¶

 FlareLightCurve([time, flux, flux_err, …]) Flare light curve class that unifies properties of K2SC-de-trended and Kepler’s lightkurve.KeplerLightCurve. KeplerLightCurve([time, flux, flux_err, …]) Subclass of LightCurve which holds extra data specific to the Kepler mission. KeplerQualityFlags This class encodes the meaning of the various Kepler QUALITY bitmask flags, as documented in the Kepler Archive Manual (Ref. KeplerTargetPixelFile(path[, quality_bitmask]) Class to read and interact with the pixel data products (“Target Pixel Files”) created by NASA’s Kepler pipeline. TessLightCurve([time, flux, flux_err, …]) Subclass of LightCurve which holds extra data specific to the TESS mission. k2sc_lc([time, flux, flux_err, flux_unit, …]) This class is a wrapper for lightkurve (github.com/KeplerGO/lightkurve) so it can call k2sc.
