27th Apr 2015: System Maintenance work done

The system maintenance work was successfully completed over the weekend. All systems should be back online, but if you experience any problems with the KASOC website, please let us know and we will look into it right away.

27th Apr 2015: DR24 Short Cadence Data available

The Short Cadence data from Data Release 24 is now available. Bundles are still being created, but data is available under "Data Search".

23rd Apr 2015: DR24 Long Cadence data available

The new long cadence data from Data Release 24 is now available in KASOC. This constitutes new target pixel files and light curves for all Kepler targets (Q0-Q17).
Short cadence data is still being transferred, but will be available shortly. Bundles are also being updated.
