The Kepler Space Telescope monitored the light (photometry) coming from approximately 150,000 stars in the constellations of Cygnus, Lyra and Draco. This photometric data enables scientists to detect planets through several mechanisms by which planets affect the light emitted by their host stars. This includes transiting events, during which the planet passes in front of its host star temporarily blocking a fraction of the star's light. Also important are the reflected light from the planet, thermal emissions from a hot planet, Doppler boosting and ellipsoidal variations. The figure illustrates an analysis of the photometric data recorded from the Kepler-76 star system. Kepler-76 is a sun-type star that hosts a two Jupiter-mass planet that closely orbits the star with an orbital radius of 0.028 AU and an orbital period of 1.5 days.
