Release of Proxima Centauri HARPS science spectra

Published: 07 Sep 2016

The science 1-D spectra products from the HARPS observations of the ESO programme 096.C-0082, P.I. Guillem Anglada, from January to March 2016, are now available from the ESO Science Archive Facility. The results from the analysis of these spectra are published in the paper entitled “A terrestrial planet candidate in a temperate orbit around Proxima Centauri”, by G. Anglada-Escudé et al., in Nature.

The HARPS spectra can be queried and downloaded using the Phase 3 generic query form that provides access to all Phase 3 data, or else the Phase 3 query form dedicated to spectroscopic data with query parameters suited to harvest 1D spectra from ESO programme 096.C-0082.

More information regarding the data format and specification are available in the data release description for HARPS in-house processed data.
