We present 44 days of high duty cycle, ultra precise photometry of the 13th magnitude star Kepler-5 (KIC 8191672, Teff= 6300 K, log g= 4.1), which exhibits periodic transits with a depth of 0.7%. Detailed modeling of the transit is consistent with a planetary companion with an orbital period of 3.548460 ± 0.000032 days and a radius of 1.431+0.041−0.052 RJ. Follow-up radial velocity measurements with the Keck HIRES spectrograph on nine separate nights demonstrate that the planet is more than… 
KEPLER-7b: A TRANSITING PLANET WITH UNUSUALLY LOW DENSITY
We report on the discovery and confirmation of Kepler-7b, a transiting planet with unusually low density. The mass is less than half that of Jupiter, MP = 0.43 MJ, but the radius is 50% larger, RP =
KEPLER OBSERVATIONS OF TRANSITING HOT COMPACT OBJECTS
Kepler photometry has revealed two unusual transiting companions: one orbiting an early A-star and the other orbiting a late B-star. In both cases, the occultation of the companion is deeper than the
Kepler-22b: A 2.4 EARTH-RADIUS PLANET IN THE HABITABLE ZONE OF A SUN-LIKE STAR
A search of the time-series photometry from NASA's Kepler spacecraft reveals a transiting planet candidate orbiting the 11th magnitude G5 dwarf KIC 10593626 with a period of 290 days. The
Kepler-14b: A Massive Hot Jupiter Transiting an F Star in a Close Visual Binary
We present the discovery of a hot Jupiter transiting an F star in a close visual (0.″3 sky projected angular separation) binary system. The dilution of the host star's light by the nearly equal
THE HOT-JUPITER KEPLER-17b: DISCOVERY, OBLIQUITY FROM STROBOSCOPIC STARSPOTS, AND ATMOSPHERIC CHARACTERIZATION
This paper reports the discovery and characterization of the transiting hot giant exoplanet Kepler-17b. The planet has an orbital period of 1.486 days, and radial velocity measurements from the
KEPLER-18b, c, AND d: A SYSTEM OF THREE PLANETS CONFIRMED BY TRANSIT TIMING VARIATIONS, LIGHT CURVE VALIDATION, WARM-SPITZER PHOTOMETRY, AND RADIAL VELOCITY MEASUREMENTS
We report the detection of three transiting planets around a Sun-like star, which we designate Kepler-18. The transit signals were detected in photometric data from the Kepler satellite, and were
HAT-P-25b: A HOT-JUPITER TRANSITING A MODERATELY FAINT G STAR
We report the discovery of HAT-P-25b, a transiting extrasolar planet orbiting the V = 13.19 G5 dwarf star GSC 1788-01237, with a period P = 3.652836 ± 0.000019 days, transit epoch Tc = 2455176.85173
Two temperate sub-Neptunes transiting the star EPIC 212737443
We report the validation of a new planetary system around the K3 star EPIC 212737443 using a combination of K2 photometry, follow-up high-resolution imaging and spectroscopy. The system consists of
HAT-P-14b: A 2.2 MJ EXOPLANET TRANSITING A BRIGHT F STAR
We report the discovery of HAT-P-14b, a fairly massive transiting extrasolar planet orbiting the moderately bright star GSC 3086-00152 (V = 9.98), with a period of P = 4.627669 ± 0.000005 days. The
HAT-P-20b–HAT-P-23b: FOUR MASSIVE TRANSITING EXTRASOLAR PLANETS
We report the discovery of four relatively massive (2–7 MJ) transiting extrasolar planets. HAT-P-20b orbits the moderately bright V = 11.339 K3 dwarf star GSC 1910-00239 on a circular orbit, with a

The Kepler Mission, launched on 2009 March 6, was designed with the explicit capability to detect Earth-size planets in the habitable zone of solar-like stars using the transit photometry method.
Pre-Spectroscopic False Positive Elimination of Kepler Planet Candidates
Ten days of commissioning data (Quarter 0) and 33 days of science data (Quarter 1) yield instrumental flux time series of ∼150,000 stars that were combed for transit events, termed threshold crossing
Refined stellar, orbital and planetary parameters of the eccentric HAT‐P‐2 planetary system
We present refined parameters for the extrasolar planetary system HAT-P-2 (also known as HD 147506), based on new radial velocity and photometric data. HAT-P-2b is a transiting extrasolar planet that
