Lightkurve is a community-developed, open-source Python package which offers a beautiful and user-friendly way to analyze astronomical flux time series data, in particular the pixels and lightcurves obtained by NASA's Kepler and TESS exoplanet missions.

This package aims to lower the barrier for both students, astronomers, and citizen scientists interested in analyzing Kepler and TESS space telescope data. It does this by providing high-quality building blocks and tutorials which enable both hand-tailored data analyses and advanced automated pipelines.
