  • We measure the mass and radius of the star and planet in the TrES-2 system using 2.7 years of observations by the Kepler spacecraft. The light curve shows evidence for ellipsoidal variations and Doppler beaming on a period consistent with the orbital period of the planet with amplitudes of 2.79+0.44 –0.62 and 3.44+0.32 –0.37 parts per million (ppm), respectively, and a difference between the dayside and the nightside planetary flux of 3.41+0.55 –0.82 ppm. We present an asteroseismic analysis of… CONTINUE READING
