    find new planets by detecting dips in light of stars when planets transits. maybe you will find a cool planet in the process. with data from kepler.

    So have you found any? What are some tips and advice on how to use it?

    its very simple. when you enter the website there is a tutorial that teaches you how to detect the dips clearer than i would explain.
    of course i have seen dips in light but one can not be sure if its a planet.
