Has the GALEX project surveyed the Kepler field in the near-UV and far-UV?
In the summer of 2009 the GALEX Project surveyed much of the Kepler field. These survey products, including a cross-matched catalog of KIC objects observed by GALEX will be added to the GALEX GR6 (General Release 6) in the late summer of 2010. These products will be announced when available on Athe MAST/GALEX website. • Are there other UV-optical-IR missions that have surveyed the Kepler field? The 2MASS Survey, a survey of 70% of the full sky at the 3 infrared J, H, K bands (1.25, 1.65, and 2.17 microns), includes nearly all bright KIC targets, and is fairly complete down to KEPMAG 16 or 17. For all but faint KIC objects the 2MASS_ID often provides a good (though imperfect) substitute for Kepler_ID values in queries on the MAST search pages, particularly for cross-referencing to external catalogs. Users should be also aware of objects observed from the ground in the Kepler All Sky Automated Survey. This is a photometric survey dedicated to the ground-based study of optical variables i
