Kepler's Pixelated Trappist 1

When scientists and NASA announced the discovery of Trappist-1 last month, it came with the unusual addendum that raw observations of the star by the Kepler Space Telescope would be made available to the public as soon as they make it back to Earth.

That first download of data from Kepler came in last week.

The raw data is pretty much meaningless and indiscernible to a layperson.

But using a tool from NASA to process some of it, we now have our first GIF of Trappist-1: Told you.

Kepler's Pixelated Trappist 1

When NASA scientists announced the discovery of Trappist-1 in February, it came with the news that raw observations from the Kepler Space Telescope would be made available to the public as soon as they make it back to Earth.

Now just a few weeks later the first image has emerged.

The image is just 11 x 11 pixels, and it covers almost three months worth of observations by Kepler.
