We've added data for the TRAPPIST-1 system confirmed to have seven Earth-size planets, some of which are in the habitable zone. The archive now contains parameters for: TRAPPIST-1 b, c, d,e, f, g, and h. See their respective Planet Overview pages, or go to the Confirmed Planets table (https://goo.gl/o3G2pH).

To view only the most recently added planets and updated parameters (default and non-default), see this pre-filtered and pre-sorted interactive table: https://goo.gl/m3j2ZB

You may also read the Gillon et al. 2017 discovery paper in Nature (https://goo.gl/X8BoSy) and the NASA press release (https://goo.gl/eF8oqY).

This week there are two new planets, K2-108 b (https://goo.gl/HyxolY) and KELT-16 b (https://goo.gl/W57OK0), as well as various updated parameters.

See the Confirmed Planet Overview pages or the Confirmed Planets interactive table (https://goo.gl/HudGoL) for the data.

Newly confirmed planets K2-107 b, WASP-53 b & c, WASP-81 b, and TAP 26 b have been added this week, all of which are accessible from the Confirmed Planets table. (https://goo.gl/HudGoL)

You may also access their Overview pages using the Explore the Archive search on the home page.

Great article about the archive and how we catalog and serve #exoplanet data. FYI our site also has tools & services to work w/ the data.

Two new planets!

We've added K2-106 b and c to the archive. See the Confirmed Planets table for the data. (https://t.co/TgNDZlWOQb)

We're pleased to announce a NEW Microlensing table!

This interactive table focuses on microlensing-specific observational and model parameters. Additional data and objects will be added over the next few months until all confirmed microlensing planets are available. The columns available in this table are listed and defined in the documentation.

View it here: https://goo.gl/oyYB5U

To compare and review microlensing planets against other confirmed planets, please use the Confirmed Planets interactive table (https://goo.gl/op4V8A).

Astronomers! Here's your chance to help future follow-up observations in the age of Big Data.

The NASA Exoplanet Science Institute (NExScI) is organizing the scientific meeting "Know Thy Star - Know Thy Planet: Assessing the relevance of ground-based high resolution imaging and spectroscopy of Exoplanet Host stars."

The purpose of the meeting is to form an understanding of the needs of the community for follow-up observations in the era of K2 and TESS and leading into JWST, PLATO, and WFIRST. The meeting will focus on the need for stellar characterization, bound (and unbound) companions, false positive assessment, and planetary characterization, with an emphasis on the techniques necessary to accomplish these goals.

The meeting will be held October 9-12, 2017 in Pasadena, California. For more information, see:

ExoFOP-Kepler added information on companions to KOI
host stars detected in follow-up images, as compiled by
Furlan et al. (2017). We've added new tables with information
on the companion stars as well as tables with correction
factors for planet radii due to the transit dilution by the
companions.

The Kepler team has published an erratum for the DR24 Window Functions; users of these functions should consult the revised documentation (KSCI-19085-002.pdf; see Section 4).
